  1. Krista R

    My daughter is a freshman this year and has always had a dream to write her own novel, but had no prior experience with putting together a complete book. She loves murder mysteries and when I saw this course I knew she would love it. She has already grown so much in her writing, character development and understanding of the components needed to develop a novel, and it’s only the first semester. Meredith’s course is a dream come true for her, and I can not recommend it enough. It is a solid course with a strong balance between education and enjoyment, and Meredith has done a terrific job of engaging the students and motivating them to put the effort into the course. I am very impressed!

    This class was a perfect fit for my sophomore teen girl who loves to read and write! Meredith Curtis is an engaging teacher that has the right balance of encouragement and expectation to challenge the students to do their best. It is academic, but also creative. We appreciated the clear communication of assignments, due dates, expectation and feed back on work. The wholesome mystery books they read and discussed gave beneficial exposure of various styles of writing. Mrs. Curtis is a wonderful Godly role model that inspired my daughter to use her abilities to serve the Lord. She would love to take another literature or writing class with Mrs. Curtis ~ We highly recommend this course!
