    We know we can trust IEW and now Mary Pryor to provide academically rigorous college prep material. With the goal of preparation for the AP English Language exam, the student is led step-by-step through style analysis as well as argument and synthesis essays (i.e. analysis of rhetorical strategies). Literature focal points are non-fiction works, mythology, and MacBeth. The student learns to evaluate and edit their own written responses, a major step toward confidently setting foot in the AP test room or a college classroom. Spiral-bound. Janice

    Now there's no reason to wait until your student is in 3rd grade. Bible Heroes is an excellent language arts bridge from IEW's Primary Arts of Language to their theme-based writing lessons. Or you might decide to use it as a new entry point for the IEW program (as you finish your favorite phonics/reading program). Either way, I think you will be very pleased with what this program supplies – lessons that not only provide instruction in writing with structure and style (as the name implies), but also introductory grammar and Bible. The 27 lessons cover IEW Unit 1 (two lessons teaching Key Word Outlines), Unit 2 (seven lessons on Writing from KWOs), Unit 3 (twelve lessons on Summarizing Narrative Stories), Unit 4 (three lessons on Summarizing References), Unit 5 (three lessons on Writing From Pictures), and Unit 7 (one lesson on Creative Writing) The approach is solidly multi-sensory. Lessons include verbal and written activities as well as games for reinforcement and all source material is taken from the Bible. Although the target audience for this course is 1st-2nd grade, material can be adapted for up to 5th grade.

    The consumable Student Book provides instructions which are to be read to the student, additional gray boxes that have notes to the teacher, and space for students to complete lessons and writing assignments. Appendices include: styles helps, game pieces (cardstock), and vocabulary cards (also cardstock).

    Purchasers of this course have access to two free downloads from the IEW website. One of the downloads is the Student Resource Notebook (also available for purchase in hard copy format). It provides supplementary and reference material needed by the student. The other download is the Bible Heroes Teacher's E-book; this Teacher's Manual is a vital part of the course and its use is expected. It provides more detailed instructions for each lesson, a scope and sequence chart, ideas for discussion of each hero and virtue, answers to review questions, sample key word outlines, brainstorming pages, instruction for games and activities, copies of checklists, and copies of game boards. ~ Janice

    Hmmm. I think you would call this series of DVD lectures "in-service training". Don't we need a certain number of credits each year? Oh, wait! I'm getting us homeschoolers confused with the other guys. Nevertheless, these are wonderful lectures. From Andrew Pudewa's description of the four arts of language (yes, just four, not the umpteen that we normally think of) – listening, speaking, reading, and writing – to Andrew Kern's lost tools of writing, these lectures are inspiring; they're insightful; and they're practical. The Christian, classical home educator will find herself recommitted to the development of strong language skills in her children as well as better able to facilitate that development. The three DVD set provides five lectures plus a question and answer period with both Andrews. Lectures: The Four Language Arts, The Five Paths to Great Writing, The Distinctives of Classical Rhetoric, Developing the Essayist, and Assessment. Handouts to the lectures can be downloaded from the IEW website. ~ Janice

    IEW units-based writing lessons using the Holling C. Holling books and Beautiful Feet's Literature Approach to Geography as source texts. An excellent way to extend the cross-curriculum value of this study. Spiral-bound, ~ Janice

    There's a lot of versatility in this short course on creative writing a la IEW methodology. There are ten lessons (each will take one to three class periods/days). Lessons have three parts: learning about some aspect of writing stories and assigning homework stories, doing an in-class writing assignment to practice what was just learned, and reading aloud homework stories to each other with time for feedback. This book is written to the teacher, but most of the pages are for the student. These can be reproduced for a family or classroom. Instruction progresses from planning/writing a seven-sentence story to rewriting a fable in their own words, using pictures to write a story, point of view, creating memorable characters, crafting dialogue, writing scenes, creating conflict, recognizing satisfactory endings, starting, and revising. The purchaser is entitled to a downloadable copy of the Pictures for Unit 5 e-book (downloading instructions are included).

    Very flexible, this course could be used as a creative writing unit during the school year or as a special summer unit. You could also go through the entire course once a year for several years using alternate assignments or take 3-4 days per lesson rather than the 1-2 expected. This last option would allow your student to practice writing more stories. 96 pgs, spiral-bound. ~ Janice

    You might think of this 2 hr, 20 min DVD as TWSS Lite. Andrew Pudewa provides a brief introductory overview of the nine units of his Teaching Writing Structure & Style seminar/methodology along with several stylistic techniques. The DVD also provides accompanying seminar handouts. While it's still preferred that those using the theme-based writing lessons experience the master TWSS seminar, this condensed version is perfect for parents of students taking classes using the IEW methods. Updated to align with the 2015 version of TWSS. ~ 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

    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

    The three DVDs in this set from the Institute for Excellence in Writing aim to help upper high school and college students improve their communications and information processing skills. Each DVD is 90 to 100 minutes long and is accompanied by a CD-ROM with student seminar handouts, teacher's notes, and more (access to a downloadable booklet with the same content as the CD-ROM is also included, but no print booklet is included with this product).

    Covers planning and writing a persuasive paper. Beginning with selection of a topic, the focus is on moving the reader or listener to your point of view. The first half of the tape deals primarily with a paper, while the second half coaches the student on public speaking techniques.

    Speaker Andrew Pudewa demonstrates a flexible "stick and branch" approach to note taking. He believes this is a more effective method of understanding complicated ideas taken from text or lectures. Mastering this technique can make a big difference in school and work performance.

    A basic model is presented which can be adapted to a variety of needs. The author also provides a method for identifying the preferences of the teacher and modifying the writing style to appeal to the teacher.

    Think it might be fun to learn a little history from the land "down under"? This writing course will give you that option – or it could be used to supplement a full-blown Australian history course (there's a book and movie resource list in the back). Either way you'll find this course to be an interesting way to learn and practice the IEW writing skills – note taking, writing from notes, summarizing narrative stories, summarizing references, writing stories from pictures, research reports, creative writing, essay composition, and writing reviews/critiques as well as their stylistic elements. There are 2-4 lessons for each of these units (23 lessons total) that cover history, animals, landmarks and biographical sketches – all pertinent to Australia. Lessons typically include the objective, a source text(s), specific instruction about both structure and style skills, and a check sheet. The consumable text is written to the student and could be used as a sequel to the Student Writing Intensive or as a beginning writing course if the teacher/parent has viewed the Teaching Writing Structure & Style course. Note: the Australian author uses the British spelling of some words (i.e. summarising). 140 pgs, spiral-bound. Please note there is Christian content. ~ Janice

    There's nothing like a good resource to make you feel more confident as a teacher. And this is a GOOD resource for anyone teaching classes or students using the IEW writing methodology. The IEW elements of style can be a bit challenging, particularly the advanced dress-ups and decorations. This resource manual (available previously only as a download from IEW) is full of lesson ideas, samples from classic literature, exercises, and games. For your students there are lots of reproducible (for a family or class) student lesson pages plus master sheets to enable them to prepare a personal collection of style elements. For you there is a complete answer key, a selected bibliography, a review game and two versions (for younger and older students respectively) of a simile game. About half of the book is game pieces printed on colored cardstock. 125 pgs. spiral-bound ~ Janice

    Do you have a writer in your home? Someone who always has a good story floating around in his head and is eager to "get it out?" Lee Roddy, author of more than 50 novels, has a passion for helping young writers move from that "wannabe" stage. Published by IEW, this does not follow the IEW pattern. It's more like participating in a one-on-one training session with the author. Writing directly and conversationally to the student, in each chapter Mr. Roddy first shares his insight and wisdom on the topic, then provides a checklist so the student can be sure of his understanding of the discussion. Then the student is invited to pick up her pen and do a bit of writing, applying the instruction. Chapters include characters, specific novel genres (i.e. suspense, romance, mystery, etc.), plot development, scenes, researching/interviewing, and marketing. Thorough to the end, Mr. Roddy even includes a section on recent changes in the book industry. Highschoolers will be able to work through this course on their own but will, undoubtedly, appreciate encouragement from the parent's corner. It could be used either as the composition portion of any year's English credit or as a special (i.e. senior?) project. 139 pgs, spiral-bound ~ Janice

    The IEW writing lessons are an excellent way to augment learning in one area – in this instance economics. There are 23 lessons covering the skills in all nine units at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Lesson material includes economic principles and theory, business practices, and entrepreneurialism with both U.S. and International scenarios. Teacher and student material is in one book. ~ Janice
