    Rarely has a book appealed more to me at first glance. Remaining uncluttered, the concept of "playing with words" is evident in the colorful, graphic font manipulations (lines of type that sway), the cute illustrations, and the lists wonderful, whimsical, but never wayward words. This is a book about choosing the right word when you write. I use the word "appealing" quite a bit, so I thought I would look through the lists in this book and find a new one. I quickly discovered that this little diction worktext did not include "appealing" in any of its lists (or at least not that I could find). That means that I could put it in a "my words" section on one of the list. Would it best go on the Cheerful Clown Fish page or the Exuberant Sea Otter page or perhaps under the Ways to Describe Appearance or the Ways of Speaking list?

    Confused yet? This not-quite-a-vocabulary program, not-quite-a-thesaurus – it's all about discovering just the right word to use when writing. It features structured word lists organized around Character Traits, Ways to Describe, and Ways to Move with a few miscellaneous lists thrown in for good measure. Each list contains nouns, adjectives, adverbs, and verbs. Students are encouraged to playfully interact with these lists with the goal of acquiring quality word choices to incorporate into their writing. Using games and family activities to become familiar with the layout and content of the book, students can then use it independently as they endeavor to interject more definitive word selections into their compositions. Interspersed throughout the book are "Quotes to Inspire Your Writing" taken from classic literature as well as biblical quotes designed to underscore whatever topic is the focus of that page's lists.

    The suggested grade levels for this product indicate it should be used by emerging writers – those who need to find exactly the right word – as they practice their writing skills. Such a student might scan the Generous Manatee list looking for "ly" words (abundantly, bounteously, copiously), or strong adjectives (exorbitant, magnanimous, plenteous) or verbs (showered, bestowed) and feel quite empowered by the choices. However, I also think much younger children (upper elementary) could benefit from this book – becoming familiar with the lists, playing around with the words, etc. I can also easily imagine using this book myself as I seek alternatives to my overused word choices.

    At less than 100 pages, one might think this spiral-bound volume by Loranna Schwaeofer published by IEW is a bit pricey. Although it is reproducible for one homeschooling family or classroom, some of the colorful charm will be lost. Also, each student may want to personalize his own well-worn copy. The fact is, I know of nothing else quite like it – an opportunity to build one's vocabulary, a tool for strengthening one's ability to write with style, and a delightful immersion into the world of words. ~ Janice

    Suppose your junior or senior high student has been through Level B or C of the Student Writing Intensive (SWI) seminar and has a good understanding of how to write a paragraph using topic and clincher sentences. He may even have a little bit of experience with essay writing but you feel he needs more instruction and practice with essays. This course is for you! Focusing specifically on the structure and content of essay writing, it's an extension and refinement of IEW's Unit VIII (on the formal essay). Utilizing a four-step teaching strategy which includes preliminary instruction, modeling, practice with help, and "on your own" work, this ten-week course by Lesha Myers takes the student step-by-step through the essay-writing process. Teaching units include thesis statements, essay organization, transitions, introductions, and conclusions and end with descriptive and persuasive essay practice. The course book includes student pages with instruction written directly to the student and teacher pages that include helps (grading and schedules) and unit by unit lesson plans.

    What do crows, peacocks, and bird nest soup have in common? They're just a few of the fun and fascinating things that your student will WANT to write about. Within its 24 lessons (a year's worth) it covers TWSS Units 1-7 (taking notes, summarizing narrative stories, writing from pictures, mini-research report, and creative writing) and several stylististic elements. Teacher prep is non-existent – you only need to read through the lessons with your student and be prepared to be "wowed" by their writing (and, of course, do a little evaluating). Although your student will want to make a final portfolio copy of their writing assignments, all the preliminary work – outlines, brainstorming charts, along with checklists – are provided in the consumable, 159-page spiral-bound text. Appendices include: banned words & prepositions and substitutes, -ly words. The purchaser may download an optional accompanying teacher e-book from the publisher's website. ~ Janice

    College-bound high school students are expected to write essays. Of the many, there are two (maybe three) essays that are "once-in-a-lifetime" experiences the ACT and/or SAT essay and the college entrance essay. These are very specific types of writing tasks and are quite different from a typical subject area essay and different from one another. One is a timed response to a prompt. It must be completed quickly and coherently. On the other hand, you can take as much time as you want writing the other. It must be as close to perfect as possible. You can prepare for both of these writing experiences. This video seminar from the Institute for Excellence in Writing and presented by Andrew Pudewa is a five DVD set two that cover/review general strategies for essay writing, one each for understanding and preparing for the New ACT Essay and the Redesigned SAT Essay, and, lastly, one covering strategies for the "personal essay."
    General strategies (Parts 1a and 1b) cover types of essays, possible ways to organize body paragraphs as well as possible essay structures, practice in the five canons of classical rhetoric, and stylistic elements. The TRIAC (topic, restriction, illustrations, analysis, clincher) outline is reviewed and practiced.
    The new ACT essay and the redesigned SAT essay have significant differences. The ACT essay is a prompt essay while the redesigned SAT essay is optional and is based on a source text. Parts 2 and 3 of this video seminar series provide techniques for producing quality essays in each of these situations in addition to thoroughly understanding what to expect and what is expected.
    Part 4 examines the personal essay, providing sample essay prompts/questions and typical questions including those that might be specific to Christian colleges as well as some wildcard questions.
    As expected, the most important preparation activity for these types of essays is to write a lot. Students are encouraged to complete one or more essays as a final practice assignment. Utilizing the strategies presented in this seminar and building in opportunities for many practice essays, you will make the best use of your preparation time.
    The HSEI Course includes a set of five DVDs and a course handout as well as an access code for the online streaming version of the seminar. The Handout (available as a separate purchase item as well) is the Portable Walls for the Essayist (a handy set-up-on-your-desk reference for everything pertaining to writing quality essays) plus extensive note-taking material from the seminar.

    With the word "progymnasmata" showing up here and there, homeschoolers are becoming familiar with this collection of rhetorical exercises that has endured with success within the Western Tradition. This was the classical Greek method of building up the student's reasoning and articulation skills through a series of interrelated, rhetorical exercises. Learning to write and speak more persuasively is a worthwhile investment of time and energy for the advanced student who already has a firm grasp of grammar. This series of 31 lessons is a teacher-oriented collection of lessons that the teacher can use to help teach rhetoric. It's not a workbook intended to teach the student rhetoric. A model check sheet is provided to help with grading. Please note there is Christian content. ~ Janice

    If you've been wondering what to use for grammar alongside your IEW material, the problem is solved. Fix Its are passages from well-loved books – 132 per book to be precise. Working on 1 passage per day, students look for and correct embedded grammar errors and learn a new vocabulary word. As added reinforcement for the IEW methodology, students are also expected to identify Dress-Ups and Sentence Openers (part of the IEW writing style instruction). By using stories, students are exposed to great classic literature and become eager to read the originals. Because there is a continuing story line, the daily grammar edits become fun and entertaining as well as challenging. The 132-passage sets (a year's worth; 33 wks of 4 per week) come from 5 different stories each with a recommended grade level: Tom Sawyer (grades 3-6), Frog Prince, or Just Desserts (grades 4-8), The Little Mermaid (grades 6-9), The King and the Discommodious Pea (grades 7-10), and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (grades 9-12). Accordingly, this one book provides daily grammar edits for five years or for multi-age students. Each series of passages starts out with an introduction to both the grammatical content and the story as well as providing background information on the story and its author. Each student will need a dictionary. It's also assumed that the student and teacher will be familiar with either the Teaching Writing Structure & Style or the Student Writing Intensive seminars from IEW. However, the Fix It edits can be done as a stand-alone program. The Fix It manual is intended as a teacher resource. The passages to be edited are presented in parallel columns with the corrected version. These can be presented to students on a blackboard/whiteboard or as an overhead for a classroom situation or worked on paper for individual students. Student worksheets with the uncorrected sentences are available in e-book format on the IEW website (all access information is included in the Fix-It manual). The manual's appendix is extensive and includes IEW writing style techniques (Dress-Ups, Sentence Openers, and Advanced Style), reference guide for Grammar & Mechanics and Abbreviations, Proofreading Symbols, Samples of Student Work and In Class Teacher Corrections, and an Index. ~ Janice
