HSHSP Ep 82: Writing Happens, Make it Useful- Professional Writing Skills

Homeschool highschoolers must have writing each year for their transcripts. Yes, writing happens, make it useful. Give them professional writing skills.

There is a greater need for professional writing-skills training in this generation. Because of the pervasiveness of the internet and the pervasively informal writing styles used in social media and blogs, teens often do not have the organic writing skills need for the many professional ways they will need to be able to communicate during adulthood.

Teens need to continually improve their communication skills if they want to find success in life. Professional Writing Skills development is one set of communication skills that they need.

Join Sabrina, Vicki, Kym and Quella the Seeing Eye Dog for an unusual discussion about this valuable kind of writing and 7Sisters’ Professional Writing Guide. This interesting guide will train your homeschool highschoolers in basic skills for the various kinds of writing they will need as adults. This is SO important! Whether they want to learn these skills or not, they WILL run into many of them either in work situations or during their service with church or community organizations.

7SistersHomeschool.com’s Professional Writing Skills course contains a semester’s worth of writing for juniors or seniors. There are 11 topics covered (13 lessons in all, each lesson lasts for approximately 1 week):

  • Business letter
