Dear Mr. Stevens:
I've recently used WriteExpress in my Grade 12 Business English class and have found the students' writing skills have improved significantly. Business English attracts students whose writing abilities are diverse.
Students who lack the requisite writing skills simply need extra help and "WriteExpress" with its digestible sentence fragments and structured approach was the answer. Students who have experienced limited success with either reading or writing skills will benefit significantly.
The results have been remarkable, to say the least! Motivation and self-esteem improved as students began to compose their letters at the computer by the end of the first lesson. The motivational aspect was evident. They looked forward to their English class and the interactive component of working on the computer.
WriteExpress is so user-friendly. Within the first class, students experienced success in creating and composing their letters. Topics covered are too numerous to mention. It is interesting and mirrors real-life situations. Several students assembled a portfolio of their letters of their own initiative for future use.
WriteExpress removes apprehension of writing letters while it guides the student, throughout the writing process. through to letter completion.
Students enjoyed their class. And why not! They were inspired. They were creating. They were experiencing success.
The example letters serve as a 'springboard' for creativity using their own thoughts while providing a framework for structure of content.
By semesters' end, word had traveled around the school about the "new English course" as others were keen on enrolling.
I highly recommend this program!
