Jump In is a wonderful new middle school writing course that overcomes the reluctant writer’s fear of writing by using a friendly, approachable style that makes the text easy to read. This course can also be used by high school students who have had little practice in writing, or who are reluctant writers. Short, workable exercises, incremental daily lessons, and non-threatening word counts will help students to write opinions, persuasive papers, and many types of expository papers, descriptions, narration, and poetry. The instructor/parent section includes what to look for in an assignment, how to give a grade, how to help the student proofread, and a one-year writing program called 10-Minute Writing Plunges. These are daily writing prompts designed for fun and interest. This two-book set includes a student workbook and a teacher’s manual.
