College-Ready Writing Essentials™ from BetterRhetor: A TOS Crew Review

College-Ready Writing Essentials™ from BetterRhetor

Did you know that 50% of college freshman are not prepared for the rigors of college writing, and are required to take remedial courses?  You can avoid this costly path by preparing your student ahead of time with College-Ready Writing Essentials™ from BetterRhetor.

This online course is designed to equip your high school junior or senior with the writing skills they need for college level writing.  Students will write a research-based essay following clear, step-by-step guidance from author, founder and CEO, William Bryant, PhD, a 10 year Director of Writing Assessments with ACT.

Students work through this 25 lesson course independently, at their own pace.  The lessons detail the writing process with expert instruction in:
  • Planning- 10 lessons
  • Drafting- 8 lessons
  • Revising - 4 lessons
  • Finalizing - 2 lessons
The end result is a 3-5 page research-supported persuasive essay with support from at least 3 credible sources.  

The curriculum is contained in an easy-to-use online teaching platform, that is very similar to the platforms my college students use.  

The course offers lifetime access, and is available in two packages:  Full and Premium.  We have been using the Full package, with my high school students, and I working through the program together. The Premium package includes additional exercises and Dr. Bryant's personalized essay feedback for your student, and includes a  full Teacher's Guide PDF.

Lessons include detailed instruction written directly to the student. Each lesson is about a page of reading with links to real-life examples, as well as, downloadable exercises and worksheets for the student to complete.

Key terms and phrases are clearly explained, and a handy reference sheet is provided your student's future use.  A printable completion certificate is included in the program.

There's more, the course includes a Bonus - 8 Concepts for the Culture of College Academics article and a 30-day money back guarantee.

One of the things I really liked about this program is that you have lifetime access.  Each time my student is getting ready to write, she can return, read and refresh for her next writing assignment.

Completing this course on their own schedule, which can be quite varied, is another benefit to this well-designed course.  Students can take the time they need to think and write with the assistance of a expert college-level writing guide always available.

Each lesson is clear and concise, very easy to follow along.  My testers have been enjoying the flexibility this program offers them.

This is a valuable tool that every high school and college student should have access to.
