When I first started teaching writing classes, I found that most writing curricula either moved too fast for the student to learn properly or was stiff as starch. Add to this the fact that many students develop a stigma toward writing early on in life and you have a recipe for defeat.
Fun Foundations in Writing is my answer to these problems. It uses a slow, incremental approach to teach words, sentences, and paragraphs, gradually working up to longer pieces of writing in the second book (to be published in 2014). Lessons are presented in a simple, non-threatening way that helps students both enjoy the writing process and succeed at writing.
It truly is a fun way to lay the foundations of formal writing!
And at only $10.95, it’s a steal!
