Language Arts has three components--Writing, Literature, and Grammar

WRITING

Are you frustrated with teaching your student how to write? Writing isn't meant to make students cringe and completely shut down. We teach a specific technique that provides a workable template so your student can write anything from a 5-paragraph essay to a 10-page research paper.
