Okay, I am obsessing. I have all these and just can't decide what my daughter really needs. She is going into 10th grade. She writes fine gramatically but just okay on style, persuasive, etc. We have not done a research paper. She has written 2 page summaries. Can any of you ladies help? I am at my wit's end!

My DS will be in 9th grade next year, and we'll be using all the resources you listed, plus others. Here's how I plan to spread it out over the next two years:

Summer: The Lively Art of Writing
9th grade: The Elegant Essay & Writing Strands 6
Summer: The Elements of Style (and finish WS 6 or start WS 7)
10th grade: Writing Strands 7 & Writing Strands Expository

11th & 12 grade will be either AP English Language/Lit courses or dual enrollment

My DS enjoys writing and is good at it, but he hasn't had much practice in essay writing.
