Podcast: Transition to Ownership—Part 2

Transition to Ownership: Part 2

This is our 5th podcast in the series related to the Natural Stages of Growth in writing. We started discussing the Transition to Ownership stage in the last episode and this is the second half of that conversation. You’ll want to listen to Part One first.

We continue our discussion of your role in the “Big Juicy Conversations” you need to be having with your fledgling thinkers.



To help grow writers at this stage, Help for High School is a self-study program written for and to teens, and the Boomerang provides teens with continued copywork and dictation practice—as well as quality literature to read and examine.

The Transition to Ownership bundle combines Help for High School and The Boomerang at a discount!

    Definitely worth the wait for this to be posted!

    I love your idea of “senses of the mind” as a parallel to senses. Brilliant!

    Thanks for these blogs!! I’m new to Brave Writer, and the blogs on stages really helped clarify. So much of what you say resonates, now to translate the ideas into our routines. Our first Friday freewrite was a great success. Copywork I’m still fuzzy on, but we’re using Boomerang this month and trusting it will show its value. I’d be interested to hear a little more about how Brave Writer online classes work – is the child talking to a person or is it all written? Are they scheduled for specific times/lectures or get to it when they can? How much time do most kids put in for class related work? Anyway, thanks for a fabulous set of ideas!
    (I’m a marathoner too, so plenty of time to think about it all:-)
