More than any other skill, a solid ability to write will help children succeed in getting accepted into and excelling at colleges and universities.  It's important that today's homeschoolers know how to express their thoughts, opinions, and beliefs effectively and convincingly.  Homeschool students will learn how to outline their thoughts, compose the introduction, body, and conclusion of papers, develop a concise writing style, and proofread for errors.  If your homeschool student is interested in entering college, this course is a must.
