Help for High School

Finally, a program written for teens, to teens!

Help for High School is a self-directed academic writing program.

It teaches rhetorical thinking, as well as the essay formats most commonly assigned in high school and college.

Inside are:

  • Fifteen modules of writing instruction
  • Six exercises that build critical thinking skills
  • Nine lessons that teach the two key essay formats
    • Exploratory Essay (open form)
    • Persuasive Essay (closed form)
  • Instruction in writing thesis statements and conducting research
  • Helpful directions for how to paraphrase and cite expert opinion
  • Samples and models for feedback are included

Help for High School teaches teens how to think, argue, and create their own powerful writing style at the same time.

Your teen will build the following skills:

  • developing a command of language
  • creating a supported argument
  • fostering a rhetorical imagination
  • comparing and contrasting viewpoints
  • discovering the role of narrative writing in academic formats
  • understanding the difference between exploratory and expository essay forms
  • writing thesis statements
  • identifying points and particulars
  • documenting sources
  • paraphrasing versus quoting experts
  • understanding viewpoint, bias, perspective, and facts
  • creating in-line citations and works cited

This program is great for kids who are no longer struggling with writing. If your student has not written a report or finds it difficult to freewrite, start with the Building Confidence program. Learning those skills first will make Help for High School a much more successful experience.

Help for High School is 166 pages, in a black and white format, and is a non-consumable PDF. One copy may be used for multiple students in the same family.
