Where Every Child
All too often, we hear that “Molly just isn’t a good writer” or “Jeffrey is more of a math kind of kid.” We allow writing to be passed off as an innate quality that you either have or you don’t; but at Online Scribblers, we know that writing isn’t so clear cut.
Students can take control of their writing and learn to do it well while at the same time having fun. It is not a dry subject full of memorization and regurgitation. NO WAY! The world of writing allows for creativity and exploration and encourages individual expression of ideas and thoughts. Writing is an art just as much as theater, painting, and music. It is meant to be experimented with and shared.
Online writing classes at Online Scribblers can complement an existing curriculum or provide a full homeschool writing program throughout the middle and high school years. Build the progression that best suits your child and let them enjoy a mix of academic and creative genres to cultivate a well rounded student writer.
