Episodes 34-35: Tips for Teaching and Grading Writing in High School

After spending three weeks talking to Kay Chance about writing, it seemed a good idea to share my own tips from years of experience and several kids, most of whom have gone onto college.

Writing is a tough subject to feel confident about. It's hard to know what constitutes “good” writing and whether your kid's work is actually any good at all or if you're just completely biased about it, LOL.

Like anything else, though, it doesn't have to be that hard. Writing can fit into your homeschool high school fairly easily, and even grading doesn't have to scare you.
