Essay Writing for Home School - Complete Curriculum
This 182-page guide is for college-bound secondary home school students. I have adapted my popular essay writing units into one coherent, self-directed home school curriculum.
The curriculum contains step-by-step instructions for writing Narrative, Compare/Contrast, Summary/Response, Research, and Argumentative Essays. There are also sections on MLA formatting, research, avoiding plagiarism, academic sources, and writing prompts. Each section builds on the last, and builds student confidence and success.
These are the essential writing skills that students need to be successful in first-year composition in college. As an instructor of first-year college composition for many years at several institutions, I know what students need to succeed.
