WriteShop is designed to teach composition skills to junior high and high schoolers in a step-by-step manner. Through a series of engaging lessons, students learn the four most common kinds of writing—descriptive, informative, narrative, and persuasive (essays)—by means of the following basic building blocks: brainstorming, writing, editing, and revising.
