Episode 51: How to Make Writing More Fun for Your Homeschooled Teen

Overview: Want your teen to have more fun writing during the homeschool day? Listen for some great ideas from Misti Lacy of WriteShop.

This episode is the first of three in which I chat with Misti Lacy, who is the Curriculum Consultant at WriteShop, which provides homeschool writing curriculum for all ages. Misti has umpteen years of experience teaching high school and college writing, and her wisdom is inspiring and encouraging!

I’ve already made it clear that I’m a fan of WriteShop, but this episode is not a sales pitch. Misti gives helpful ideas and tips for conquering the “boredom” that many teens claim to have about writing. We know this is an important skill; how can we help our teen actually have FUN writing rather than just slogging through?

This is also just a sparkling conversation between two veteran homeschool moms—you’ll be smiling while you listen!

Over the next two episodes, Misti and I will discuss how to prepare teens for college writing and also options for mom’s involvement during the writing process. Be sure to come back for those!
