Student Writing Intensive
To order, please click on the links below:
Recorded live, this entertaining and informative DVD writing course for students by Andrew Pudewa presents structural models and stylistic techniques based on our Teaching Writing: Structure and Style seminar.
Each group (A, B, or C) presumes no previous experience; levels differ mainly in the type of source texts used, speed of presentation, and sophistication of vocabulary. Choose the level based on your child’s age and maturity rather than writing ability. If you wish to use the Student Writing Intensive with children of mixed ages, you can generally select level B, “shooting for the middle.”
