walk each student through a multiple-draft writing
process, providing encouragement, correction, and instruction.
Every student receives careful, individual attention
from one of our outstanding writing coaches. Every
paper submitted to Accelawriter is returned with positive
and constructive feedback, so that every writing experience
is a learning experience. Our writing coaches are all
experienced teachers, writers and editors eager to
share their expertise and love for the written word.
We believe what athletes and musicians have always
understood--that practice makes perfect--but not practice
in isolation. Growth in any craft comes with practice
under the instruction of experts who encourage our
successes and correct our mistakes. At Accelawriter,
students complete a writing assignment every week and
receive detailed feedback from their personal writing
Final results matter, but we believe that effectively
teaching writing means focusing on the process. Every
Accelawriter assignment is written and submitted in
stages. Our writing coaches come alongside students
through the process, directing, encouraging, suggesting,
and critiquing. The result is not only a quality final
draft, but steadily growing skill in the process of
writing. Our coaches are more than mere writing evaluators.
They participate with students in the writing process
to instruct and nurture their developing skill.
We understand that writing can be either a joy or a
chore, and nothing takes the fun out of writing like
dull assignments. Weekly writing assignments from Accelawriter
are designed not only to challenge, but also to motivate
students by spanning the spectrum of purposes and forms
and engaging the individuality and creativity of each
Along with their assignments, students receive weekly
lessons that focus on one element of effective writing
at a time. As the course unfolds, these carefully sequenced
lessons coordinate with assignments to lay the foundation
for sound writing skills.
