Writing Student

Do red marks on your writing assignments intimidate you? What you write can feel so personal that, when you get less than perfect grades on assignments, you can feel hurt and discouraged. Three-fourths of the nation’s eighth and twelfth-grade students weren’t confident in their writing and didn’t meet school district standards in writing1. That’s 75% of all students that didn’t meet their grade-level standards on writing exams. So if you’re struggling with writing, you’re not alone! Composing a great paper is hard to do, but Penn Foster is here to help you feel more confident about your writing with our Writer’s Block in the Digital Library and a series of no-cost, in depth webinars!

Don’t miss this opportunity to improve your writing and crush your next composition assignment with our webinar series "Ouch, My Writing Assignments Have Red Marks Everywhere!"

Part 1: Writing Quality Paragraphs

Well thought out paragraphs are the backbone of a great essay. Each paragraph is a single unit of thought, with one developed idea, that builds on your story or your theory. Well focused paragraphs are essential for getting your point across to the reader and making sure they can follow your thought processes. The first webinar in the series is dedicated to writing quality paragraphs and how to build those through outlines and pre-writing.
