Since I have been part of Explorers I have worked in one way or another in writing classes. Most extensively with IEW. As a homeschool mom, I probably purchased one or two curriculum packages per child for writing! I am quite familiar with many writing programs. Now I am working with Terri Rigby in our High School Classical Writing class. Of course this curriculum is my current favorite.
Since we have this blog, I put this question out there : What is your writing program? Do you love it? Are your kids good writers? How did they get there?

Interesting Fact: There is a great high school class called Classical Writing at Explorers. The students are focusing on Maxims this semester. What fun. Short, pithy, words that convey a lesson or moral. Remember Benjamin Franklin? He is probably the American King of Maxims.
Maxim of the week for homeschool moms: The root of education is bitter, its fruit sweet. Isocrates.
