    One of the things I see over and over in homeschool forums and in homeschool-related email groups is a fear of teaching writing. I donít know if it is because we didnít feel like we got adequate writing instruction ourselves, or we just put so much emphasis on the importance of strong writing skills. Truth is, though, that those of us with a B.A. in Writing arenít immune to this fear. I find myself sort of hoping all that reading my kids do will simply ďrub offĒ on them without me having to do much actual instruction in writing! But I am also a realist. So Iíve been doing some research lately on some very cool online helps for teaching writing to your homeschoolers of all ages.

    • I think Iíve mentioned before the great online writing classes at Time4Writing. Each of my boys has taken some of these courses and they are so well done! There are classes for every student level Ė - from elementary to high school and college prep!
    • For a quick writing refresher, there are some neat Writing Videos at neoK12.
    • WritingCity has fun, easy and best of all user-friendly online and offline lessons for writing and grammar for grades K-5.
    • GrammarGirl is a fun and easy way to get your teens excited about writing. She has terrific podcasts, a Facebook fan page, and even some actual paperback books

    So, you are a few weeks or even a few months into your school year and realize that you HATE (yes, that is a strong word but when it applies, it applies) some or all of the curriculum choices you made. You are not alone. We have all been there at one point or another. It is a part of homeschooling. ...
