I get questions about homeschooling, teaching writing, raising kids to be leaders…all the time. So, I’ve decided to share those questions and my answers here, so everyone can benefit.
Having said that, if you have a homeschooling question, feel free to post it as a comment or email me.
What you would recommend to give my child a great preparation for college writing and SAT exams?
If you are looking for a resource that specifically prepares your son for the SAT & college, I would recommend High School Essay Intensive. It provides practice for timed tests, specifically the SAT writing prompts. It also helps with sample college application essays. Here’s our page with my newest video.
The other resource that might be helpful is the Student Writing Intensive Continuation Course.
It is a year long course for high school students who already know how to write essays and use the dress-ups/sentence openers that Andrew teaches in the regular SWI course.
Level C of Student Intensive Continuation Course covers all types of essays: basic essay, expanded essay, persuasive essay, super essay, personal essay.
One of the benefits of the Continuation Course is it truly is “Plug & Play” at the C level. Let your high schooler watch the dvd and follow the lesson plan in the manual.
All you do is give guidance in the assignment & grade the papers.
Here’s a page with more details
