Pros: I purchased the WriteShop program because it came highly recommended by another homeschooling mom. I agree with her recommendation. This program is well thought out and easy to use. My favorite part of the program is that is states clearly what is expected of the student and then grades him accordingly. This program trains students to write in stages – they learn that it takes several drafts to arrive at a final composition. As a Christian homeschooling mom I appreciate that one of the items on the student checklist is “Are my topic and choice of words pleasing to the Lord and edifying to others?” This is an excellent program that teaches various types of writing and reviews basics of grammar. I would recommend it to other homeschoolers. It states clear objectives and enables the student to succeed, and excel.
