Create Better Writers at any level

When students believe they can succeed, they begin to enjoy writing. Students using our curriculum learn quickly that writing isn’t as difficult as they once thought. Our writing books teach students one simple trick that students use to turn paragraphs into magnificent stories, essays, and research reports. Our grammar series gives students step-by-step instruction while showing them how grammar and punctuation can make their writing better.

I love your book!  I have been teaching for 43 years and am upset that I did not have it earlier.  It is truly a teacher’s gift to writing.  Your ideas are so practical and easy for students to understand.  I have seen enthusiasm and improvement in my students’ writing.  Thank you so much for writing it.

Thank you so much, and thank you for putting these books together! This is the BEST grammar series I have ever used. 

Thank you


We wrote a research paragraph this week, and it went quite well! The book provides clear directions and offers much encouragement in how to teach your students how to research and write well.

Writing Tip

#21 - Teach Root Words

There are thousands upon thousands of words in the English language. We can give list after list of words for our students to memorize and still not come close to teaching them all. Why not get more bang your buck and teach root words. Think about it, if you teach one vocabulary word your students learn one vocabulary word. If you teach one Greek or Latin Root, your students can learn dozens of words. Try the word “bene.” Knowing that this word means “good” will help your students learn many words such as “benediction,” “beneficial,” “benefit,” beneficiary,” “benefactor,” “benevolent.” A quick search of Greek and Latin words will give you dozens of great words to use in your vocabulary program. There is a chapter in The Complete Writing Program with lists of words and a vocabulary routine to go with it. There are also worksheets to help your students get the most out of these words. This beneficial list will be a benevolent gift as they become the beneficiaries of a better vocabulary.
