Incite to Write is an approved educational program in several states, providing state-wide supplemental services under federal ED legislation. For over 18 years the Incite to Write program has helped thousands of students overcome their fear of writing and become confident in both written and spoken English. Students have learned to use the process of inquiry to sharpen their critical and creative thinking skills, and to become observant, curious and responsible participants in their education.
Testimonials from Educators & Parents
“The INCITE TO WRITE program is a fun and creative method of teaching young students to feel successful and be successful at writing. I noticed significant improvements in the critical thinking and writing skills of my kids. I highly recommend this program.” Mimi Mangines, Parent

“My 3rd grade son found writing difficult, and because he wasn’t perfect at it, he’d give up before he even got started. Incite to Write changed him. He’s had so much fun creating stories and doing Punch the Period that now he’s not afraid to pick up a pencil.” Catherine Lian, Parent

“Elizabeth is filled with ideas on what to write. She asks lots of questions to give her writing details and she’s using adjectives and descriptive details.” Nancy Warren, Parent

“My 13-year old son loves the writing games. He’s made progress in writing down his thoughts and working with him is no longer a struggle. I like the strategies, too. They have helped me become more creative; I’ve gained confidence in homeschooling my son.” K. Simmons

Summer 2017

IMG_060 Summer is a good time to remember that writing is an art form, not just an academic subject. Kids deserve a break from academics, so in the summer, emphasize the creative side of writing. Have an "Imagine Hour" after sports or physical activities or when it's just too hot to do anything but sit around.


Sitting under a big shade tree with a bucket of cold water for hot and tired feet is a great set-up for writing - free from the distractions of TV and video games inside the house. Outside there are no walls, and a whole lot of life is happening every minute - just by looking down at the world of insects, or looking up and seeing the passing clouds, not to mention everything that can be seen and heard in between.

Stories are great vehicles for the imagination. They can be short ones or a long story that is continued over the whole summer. Every story has a who and where - so suggest interesting characters or animals that the story can be about to help get your kids started, or suggest an exotic or strange location, like a new planet in outer space, inside a gigantic ant tunnel, or on a melting ice cap in Alaska. Have a bag filled with interesting objects nearby, so whenever your kids get stuck in their writing, they can draw an object from the bag to give them ideas.
