What are homeschool parents saying about 7Sisters Writing Curriculum?
“The language arts writing program has helped our two reluctant writers succeed in their writing. The intermediate essay writing curriculum broke down the steps so that even my student who has never felt successful in writing, and avoids it at all cost, was able to write several papers without the panic that he used to experience. It worked well for our “writer” as well. He felt that it was challenging enough that he could grow in his writing skills without being repetitive or boring. Our daughter said that “I finally can write without fear.” They are now able to write high school level papers in all of their courses. They all said that they do not want to use any other writing curriculum ever again! Research writing, here we come!” – Adell C.
My daughter is a graduating senior who is dyslexic and dysgraphic so she finds essays very intimidating. We have struggled to find the balance between instruction that will prepare her for college and instruction that meets her where her ability level is. We have found your high school essay writing guide fits the bill for her. The assignments are broken down into easy to understand pieces and we can go as slowly or as quickly as she feels comfortable with. Also the fact that it is mostly independent work for her makes her happy because she wants less and less “mom input.” – Amber V.
