Writing Strands is designed for homeschoolers who work independently, making the writing process easier for both the teacher and student as the demands for student writing increase. Pages to record student progress with what they feel is their best work are included throughout.

Date:February 2, 2007
The lessons in this text are well written and thoroughly explained. The student can do these writing exercises with a minimum of parent involvement. These lessons are easily adaptable to whatever pace your child performs best. I have been able to cross many of these lessons to other subject areas.
