Writing Doesn't Have to be a Struggle
The Write Foundation equips you with a writing system which enables you to teach your student to confidently and quickly write a quality essay. The system begins with basic organization, drilling the fundamentals of brainstorm, outline, rough draft, edit and final draft. Learning organization helps your student break down a project into bite-sized pieces and confidently move step-by-step to complete the writing assignment. Repetition of the basics reinforces the concepts until they are learned.
This innovative curriculum, written by a veteran home educator and tested extensively in individual and group settings, has proven effective in enabling reluctant, average, and gifted writers to develop and improve their writing skills. The proven system gives you the tools to teach your students how to effectively plan and write a quality essay from scratch, giving them excellent writing skills.

The Write Foundation easily fits a variety of teaching settings. TWF can be used one-on-one or with more than one student of varying ages in a home setting. It also works well with multiple students in a homeschool co-op setting. Writing is a complex subject to teach, so the teacher is equipped with detailed lesson plans, grading specifics and other teaching tools for home and co-op settings.
This is a writing program I believe any parent could comfortably teach-even those who call themselves “non-writing” parents. Rebecca is a customer service dream, readily and efficiently responding to any questions I’ve had via email or phone. I have also purchased the Level 2: Paragraph Writing to teach next year, and expect to buy the Level 3: Essay Writing two years from now.
By the time students move through all three levels of The Write Foundation’s curriculum they will have learned the skills to write a formal college level 5-paragraph essay, formal research paper, and have experience with timed essays.
Now that I’m nearly halfway through the Sentence to Paragraph curriculum, I can honestly say I am so very glad Wendy and I drove to that particular support meeting. However, kudos still must go to Rebecca Celsor for her approach/introduction of her writing system. If she hadn’t “taught” us using her own curriculum, I might never have given it a second look. And this writing program is most definitely worth a second look. Heather Sanders, The Pioneer Woman Homeschool Blog
The Write Foundation has 3 levels available. Each level can be completed in 1 or 2 years depending on your schedule and your student’s maturity and ability level.
Level 1: Sentence to Paragraph for ages 11 - 14, flows from writing quality sentences to using the writing process and structure for developing a basic paragraph. Sentence to Paragraph can be taught one-on-one as early as 6th grade, but many more students flourish at 7th or 8th grade to begin.
Level 2: Paragraph Writing for ages 12 - 16, begins by reviewing the writing process and structure for a basic paragraph, transitioning into formal paragraph writing, and then introducing and writing a formal college level 5-paragraph essay. Paragraph Writing can be begun as early as 7th grade, but most students find they are ready for paragraph writing at the 8th grade level.
Level 3: Essay Writing for ages 14 - 18, begins with 3 and 4-paragraph formal narrative writing, reviews and then develops the writing process and structure for formal college level essays, which are 5+ paragraphs, leading into step-by-step development of a formal research paper and ending with practicing timed essays. This is a high school level homeschool course. It is recommended your child be at least in 9th grade, though many students are not ready for the high school essay writing curriculum until 10th grade or later.
Creating Sentences: Pre-paragraph Writing Level
The Write Foundation will be introducing Creating Sentences, a beginning writing level, set to launch summer 2013. See more info...
I am very happy with the results I am seeing. There is noticeable improvement in my son's writing from week to week. To date, this is the most effective writing curriculum I have used in our 13+ years of homeschooling. If you are looking for simple, hands-off writing lessons, this product is not for you. If you want a curriculum that will produce students skilled in all areas of writing, you need The Write Foundation. Lorie D., The Midlife Housewife
