Writing Aids was initially designed as a writing handbook (serving both teachers and students) to complement the existing writing assignments found in the core Tapestry of Grace curriculum. It gives both teachers and students concrete and specific direction for a wide variety of commonly taught genres and composition styles. Writing Aids is designed in two main parts: 1) A Teacher's Manual guides instructors as they teach students the nuts and bolts of a variety of writing genres and 2) a digitally delivered portion contains Talking Points (printable notes for students that dovetail with teacher instructions), Graphic Organizers (which students use to do pre-writing exercises) and Grading Rubrics (which help homeschooling parents give specific feedback on their students' written drafts). For families using Tapestry, this one-time purchase serves as a guide through teaching and evaluating all writing assignments in Tapestry for all year-plans and on all levels for your student's entire K-12 education! It is delivered in three different formats, so please read each description carefully before making your purchase.
PLEASE NOTE: Writing Aids can also be used as an independent writing handbook. Such users must supply their own weekly topics.
