Teach Kids to Write in 10 Minutes a Day, Really?

UNTIL SOMEONE 'GETS' WHAT WRITING IS ABOUT,
THEY SELDOM KNOW HOW TO GET HAPPY ABOUT IT
Written by Dr. Fred Ray Lybrand, the author of The Writing Course
 

WARNING: If your kids aren't happy about writing they will NEVER really learn, which means they will NEVER have the writing skills to make college or career a comfortable success.

Keep Reading and I'll Give You a Happy Writer Tip. Being happy about writing is exactly what probably sets The Writing Course apart from your current curriculum. If it is teaching your student how to 'write right', then more cheers for you! Your students might even notice that I used 'they' instead of him or her. However, the questions I have are, "Does your student really understand the writing process? And, "Does your current approach really teach kids how to write?

How to Teach Kids to Write in 10 Minutes a Day---

Here's an example:

Holmes Lybrand is our fourth child to be homeschooled from birth to college. His SAT score was OK (it will be in 4th place in our family of five, and he admittedly isn't our most 'academic' child; moreover, if we dared to test him, ADD and Dyslexia would most likely show up), but it got him into the University of North Texas and into the Honors Dorm. He finished both his first and second semesters with a 4.0 GPA each time (which did amaze us a little), but that isn't the cool part. The cool part was to watch him--- 

  • Make a 98% on a 14 page paper in Honors Communication (25% of his grade)

  • Make a 100% on every Political Science essay (usually took him about 45 minutes compared to his friends who took up to 2 hours and with lower grades).

  • Say to you, "After never being in a school of any kind, I found that I could write a 5 page college essay in a couple of hours without dread or frustration. My friends would labor for days or pull all-nighters with great emotional pain and fear. I wish I could put in their heads my dad's Writing Course ...what it could mean to their success in college! Also, to my surprise, I usually made 100s on all my papers (and never below a 95)."
                                        -Holmes Lybrand, 2013

The reason is simple:

  1. Holmes went through The Writing Course 4+ times in high school (but a smart 4th grader will benefit a lot as well).

  2. He wrote something almost every day of homeschool (part of how to teach kids to write)...and got the exact kind of feedback he needed (we show you how).

  3. Our feedback process usually takes a lot less than 10 minutes, which keeps everyone happy.

Now, he 'gets' language:

  • He knows why 'how it sounds' is more important than how it looks

  • He knows why starting with OK is better than trying to write something great

  • He knows how grammar works

  • He can tell if punctuation is correct without caring one bit about the rules

  • He knows how to organize his thoughts and how to get them on paper

  • He knows how to make his writing interesting

  • He knows exactly how to not worry about his writing being good or bad

  • He knows exactly how to get himself writing even when he doesn't know what to say

  • And...he knows a whole lot more ;-)

The greatest benefit of The Writing Course is that kids don't learn to HATE writing, they learn to ENJOY it.  Honestly, it is especially the tedious rule-obsessed grammar that quenches the spirit in a child (or adult).  If you think the rules are important, then great...but adding The Writing Course to your curriculum will allow your child to embrace the freedom that comes with really "getting" what language and writing is about. You'll also know how to teach kids to write in 10 minutes a day.

Here's a Starter Tip for Happy Writers: Children (and adults) MUST LEARN to write in 3 specific stages. (1) OK, (2) Get Help, (3) Make It Great. In all my years of tutoring, this is the most important insight to learn. If a child learns that 'you can't start with perfect', then he is going to go ahead and write something to use for learning. Imagine having your child actually seek out your feedback (Get Help). He will seek you out once he knows he is only trying to write something OK. The best thing I offered all my children was to send something back that was too good for a first try J. "Sorry," I'd say. "You need to start with OK, this is too good for that." Get into their hearts (and yours) that in order to teach kids how to write you MUST help them not aim for perfection or greatness...all you want to begin with is OK.

-Dr. Fred Ray Lybrand

So here's the Deal: After your child completes The Writing Course (you might want to go through it too!), we show you exactly how to have her write daily for you to give her the EXACT feedback she needs to become confident, happy, and a really good writer. Can you do that? I've got piles of letters from homeschool moms and kids who totally unleashed the 'little author within' after learning our method. BEST OF ALL - You don't have to throw away your current curriculum if it is helping you with how to teach kids to write...let The Writing Course be a great supplement you can use for all your kids with a one-time trivial investment.

As mentioned above, RIGHT NOW we are offering The Writing Course at a special early summer discount of only $67.00 if you help us out by blabbing to others after it works for you.
