This Week’s Giveaway is Hosted by Fortuigence

Fortuigence_essayrockstar_logo If you or a family you know is homeschooling a teenager, they NEED this program!  It is an online Expository Essay Writing Course.  My 16 year old son has taken the course and we’ve been really impressed with how his writing skills have improved.  Yes, I’m a blogger.  No, I’m not an expert in writing.   Blogging is pretty much written in conversational style, so I’m not always worried about the intricate details.  🙂  I was absolutely thrilled to have Lily, the writing teacher behind the scenes of Fortuigence, take on the grading and instructing of my son’s writing.   It alleviated some of the stress of teaching an older child in our home!  Here’s a quote sharing a little more about this course from the Fortuigence website:

The Expository Essay  When your child takes this short course with us, they’re going to learn to write an expository essay. This type of essay is important because it’s the most common type of essay your kids will ever write and one they’ll be asked to do frequently in high school, college, and in the workplace! The purpose of an expository essay is to explain or inform your audience objectively about a specific subject. In this short course your kids will be taught several approaches on how to give clear and thorough written explanations about their topic of choice. For example, they could explain a step by step process, give a general overview, classify their topic into several types, or compare and contrast different aspects of their topic. They can choose whichever approach they like. Last but not least, your kids are going to be trained in a 5-step writing process that they can apply to any type of writing project they face in the future. This short course is one of four writing units in our semester long Essay Rock Star writing program and takes about four weeks to complete. But here you and your kids have the opportunity to sample our online classroom and teaching approach without having to make a big financial commitment from the start.

From a review that I did for Essay Rockstar on my other site, Sidetracked Sarah, you can see just how much we love this program:

“By using the Essay Rock Star writing course, my son was able to dramatically improve his writing skills. He was not at all confident at the beginning of the course, asking me lots of questions as we went along. But, as time went on, he rarely asked me anything. I’d have to ask him or log into the platform to see if he had completed his assignments. The longer he was in the program, I was pleasantly surprised by the amazing results that I was finding! Each communication that Lily (a.k.a Mrs. I.) sent to my son was always so very encouraging. She never made him feel dumb, but always helped him to build his confidence in writing with her encouraging words of instruction. She has a gift for teaching children! Each time she communicated with my son, she would give useful tips to help him improve his essay, if needed. It was always just enough information to guide him in the needed direction, so that he could complete the assignment as instructed. My son went from hesitant writer to confident writer in two essay assignments. To say that makes me very happy is an understatement!”   Read more
