Made With You in Mind
Partner with your student in this one-of-a-kind class! We’ll teach you the techniques our coaches use and help you give constructive feedback directly on your student’s writing.
Our expert instructors will give you “feedback on the feedback,” training you to be the warm, supportive writing coach you want to be, much in the same way we train our own staff!
Brave Writer® 201 focuses on these three areas for revision:
Find What Works—so they can do it again
- Beyond a “good job!” comment
- Learn to articulate what the writing does
- See strengths that writers recognize
Ask for More—how to gently invite what the writing needs
- Flesh out ideas
- Add detail, insight, or energy
- Envision a new shape to the writing
Add Interest and Information—nonfiction writing elements
- Smooth and effective transitions
- Accurate citations
- Sentence variety
Be the writing coach your student needs and watch their writing grow!
Wait, this is a parent class?
Traditional approaches to writing would have you scribble a couple of suggestions and—poof!— your kids would be able to fix up their own writing.
The truth is, writing needs substantive, nourishing feedback to grow.
Brave Writer® cares about making YOU an effective writing coach for your kids. You will enroll with one or more kids to gain these coaching skills under the supervision of our trained instructors.
