Writing is a course that we've recently introduced into our family's learning program this year so when this review for Fortuigence came up I was immediately intrigued. I knew that my children were not quite ready to complete this course but I was interested in trying it myself so that we could possibly use it for homeschool writing in the future. I signed up for the Essay Rockstar Textual Analysis Writing Course.
I, personally, chose this course so that I could brush up on my writing skills for review purposes. I felt the need to have an extra challenge and a class all of my own to complete. I wanted to make sure I was providing the best in writing that I am able to and this course was perfect for that.
Fortuigence provides a course of lessons which help to inspire students to perform better. It helps students learn to become independent writers and self-sufficient thinkers through each lesson of the course. This is true learning at it's best.
Essay Rockstar Textual Analysis Writing Course is a short course of 7 lessons, complete with video instructions for completion. Each section of the course requires the student to watch a short video on an explanation of what's expected during that part of the course. Then the student can either read through or listen to the next section of the course, learning to put in place the part of the lesson they are learning. Lastly, students must create their own piece of writing to turn in for the assignment they are working on. This writing assignment is checked and corrected by Lily Latridis herself, the Founder of Fortuigence. Lily then emails the student back with constructive criticism on the student's selected work.
I found these courses to be exceptionally easy to follow along with and complete. I was encouraged in using the program. I knew that I was a good writer already but this program did help me to polish some of my skills and encouraged me to continue on the path I am on in writing. Sometimes I have self-doubt, after all we are our biggest critics. Through using this course, I learned that I am often harder on myself about my writing than it is necessary for me to be.
Essay Rockstar Textual Analysis Writing Course is for students who are ages 12-18. A Textual Analysis is simply a review of another person's work, which is exactly what I blog about several times a month working for the Schoolhouse crew. This course helps develop critical thinking skills and helps students learn to explain how they feel about something they've read, seen, or even used. They learn to be descriptive in their writing by really telling about the product or subject.
Essay Rockstar Textual Analysis Writing Course from Fortuigence is available for $57 for the 7 lesson course. Each lesson varies in length but follows the same format as I mentioned above. The lessons are very thorough in covering the method step by step, one leading to another. There are also various other writing courses available through Fortuigence for around the same price per course.
