Writing to Win
three integrated reading-writing routines for homeschool parents and other individuals
Homeschool learning – Since 2000
Select homeschool cooperatives helped adapt the Writing to Win routines to use with homeschool students. In classes offered once a week throughout a schoolyear, one routine at a time appeared in a 20–30-minute time blocks during the instructional day.
1st semester of Year 1 – Writing on Demand launched the first week of school.
2nd semester of Year 1 – Applied Grammar’s Sentence Building the first week after winter break.
1st semester of Year 2 – Paired Texts Packets launched on the third week of Year 2.
Note Homeschool co-op teachers taught one lesson during the weekly group class and parent teachers followed up at home with 1-2 more lessons before returning to group class the following week.
Note Once a routine was launched, parents shared their home progress with one another.
