College Prep Writers Bundle

Develop writing competence for teens (15–18)

The College Prep Writers Bundle is perfect for teens who are developing as academic writers. They’ll be introduced to a wide array of ideas and learn how to examine them critically. These high school students will produce writing that follows academic formats and learn to evaluate sources for credibility. 

Help for High School is for teens . . .

✔ intending to go to college

✔ who’ve not yet learned to write an expository essay 

✔ need a year's credit for high school English

Help for High School is a self-study program written for and to teens. The first half develops a teen's powers of argument. The second half teaches the expository essay. The processes used in the manual mirror how the essay is taught in college freshman composition classes.

Slingshot is for teens . . .

✔ reading and writing comfortably

✔ ready for novels with mature themes

✔ ready to engage in literary analysis 

Slingshot is designed to last for an entire school year and includes five handbooks. Some novels in the Slingshot program introduce themes of social justice, dystopian societies, and morally complex characters.

Slingshot and Help for High School are meant to be used simultaneously to create a year-long English Language Arts program worth one credit.
