What We Offer
Time4Writing provides online writing courses that help students in elementary, middle and high school master writing fundamentals. For eight weeks, students interact with a certified teacher, who assigns objectives and a weekly topic for study through online writing lessons. Students sign in and work through the automated exercises, lessons, readings, and written assignments. A personal writing teacher reviews and provides feedback on each assignment the day after it is submitted.
A recent U.S. Department of Education research report, Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning, found that, “On average, students in online learning conditions performed better than those receiving face-to-face instruction.” The primary reasons for this improvement are the ability for the student to go at their own pace and the active engagement required with online study programs, i.e., students learn by doing instead of by listening.
