Choose the Right Writing Class for Your Child
Selecting the Best Course
Wondering which writing class you should enroll your child in? Time4Writing offers a placement quiz to help you select which course would best suit your child’s needs. It identifies the most common writing problems and suggests which course would be most appropriate. For example, if your child is in middle school and has trouble with subject-verb agreement, then you should enroll them in the middle school course for Basic Mechanics. This course teaches students how to make common subjects and verbs agree. Does your elementary school child have problems correctly punctuating plural and possessive nouns? Then Sensational Sentences is the class you should choose.
Writing Standards by Grade Level
It’s also helpful to understand the writing standards your child is expected to master at each grade level. Writing standards include strategies, applications, evaluation, English language conventions, research and inquiry. If you wanted your child to review these concepts while on winter break or prepare for the next grade’s writing standards over the summer, you could choose a writing course that teaches those standards. For instance, fifth grade standards include writing narrative and expository writing, so you might like to enroll your child in our “Welcome to the Essay” course. Learn more about grade-by-grade writing standards and how Time4Writing can help your child master these skills.
