This homeschool writing curriculum features a slow, systematic approach for seventh grade students, aged 12 to 13, to learn to write well. The step-by-step approach allows students to focus on small, daily assignments, so they don’t feel overwhelmed and retain the information.  Lessons are taught by Matthew Stephens, the author/teacher, and are short and to the point.  Students then apply the lessons through the work in their workbook.

Students will learn to apply parts of speech as well as use them as tools for effective communication. They will learn to write effectively by using a variety of sentence structures in paragraphs, a narrative, personal and business letters, an essay, and a research project. Students will explore expository, descriptive, persuasive, and compare, and contrast writing.

It is recommended students start this program after they have a good understanding of spelling phonetically. All About Spelling is highly recommended.


Unit One covers grammar instruction with activities where students learn to apply parts of speech, to identify and correct common problems in writing, to use parts of speech along with a variety of sentence structures and vivid language as tools for effective communication, and to effectively paraphrase and summarize content.

Unit Two covers the writing process for multiple compositions as well as how to communicate effectively in written language through a variety of styles and formats by applying effective writing tools. The unit ends with a research project.

If your plans for the school year also include Essentials in Literature 7, then you can purchase these two courses together in the EIW English Bundle Level 7 and save a little money.

For those who like to be able to do offline learning, Essentials in Writing is offering DVDs that can be purchased separately. They include all online videos. This is an add-on for the EIW Level 7 online course.
