Since this is probably new to most folks 'round here, I'll just share a couple thoughts. Of course, there may be a person or two who have used it who will have better answers
My first thought is that Marie spoke highly about the parent guide:
My second thought is that you could look at the samples I've seen, I think on SWB's blog? I think you'll find them if you google, but if not, send me a note and I'm sure I can find them.Marie wrote:The Writing with Skill Instructor Text acts as a writing coach, leading the parent step by step through each lesson in the student workbook, explaining specific ways to assist students (parent involvement about 15 minutes per day).
However, if you've successfully been coaching your children's writing all along, you may be willing to give it a try on your own and you can always order the guide later if needed.
