Merit Question and Answer
Jake is very bright but he needs a little elementary school writing help.


Area of Concern: Process Writing

Submitted by: Parent

Grade Level: Elementary School

Competency: Below Level

Jake is a a very bright fourth grader who had trouble learning to decode and write. He has mastered the decoding problem. He does not have compression problems; however, he has a very hard time writing complete sentences. His spelling is also terrible. His main problem appears to be transmitting his thoughts, knowledge in writing.



Thank you for contacting us. I believe that Merit Software products will be very beneficial to Jack.

I suggest that he starts with Starter Paragraph Punch. The program helps students develop their paragraph writing skills through reason, detail, sequence, example, and cause and effects. Choosing from a menu of topics, students are guided to develop an idea, and to write their own topic sentence, body, and conclusion. Steps include pre-writing, writing, organizing, revising, rewriting, and publishing.

Once Jack has mastered Starter Paragraph Punch he may move on to Paragraph Punch which is a move advanced version.
Good luck!
