Not sure what will be on the dreaded writing test?

Is it an ‘open response’ that will surprise your child and ask them to write something they haven’t before? Like an advice sheet, memoir, an explanation, a report, a review, a formal letter, a casual email etc...

Then, this online writing course for open response is for you. It helps your child cope with the demands of writing essays in exams when the prompt is unknown and could be any style. The course will introduce your child to a step-by-step process for writing top-notch essays covering various styles of writing, like memoirs, letters, emails, advice/guidance sheets, reports etc... so that your child can ace their scholarships and/or selective school exam.

In 18 extensive checkpoints, we’ll:

  • look at how to write an open response and what areas to focus on to help your child gain those much needed points,
  • go through various open response writing prompts and how long your open response should be,
  • provide examples of high-scoring open response pieces and strategies on how your child can write at a similar level.

Each checkpoint ends with a writing stimulus in the form of writing prompts or visuals so you can apply the powerful techniques you’ve learned in practice.

This course also includes complimentary expert scoring (using our unique 52-point scoring system) & expert video feedback on 1 of your essays - you can see an example of scoring and expert video feedback on a real essay here.
