    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.

    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

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

    This program can be used for Levels A, B or C. 30 lessons are included in a spiral-bound book with ready-made lesson plans, Scripture used as a subject for writing, and multi-level checklists. Each lesson provides a specific objective, at least two translations of Scripture, an assignment with checklists, and a space for the final copy to be written or pasted into the book, which creates a portfolio of the year's work. Checklists are provided for the three different levels. Sample compositions are plentiful, as well as vocabulary development and review exercises to strengthen understanding of stylistic techniques. The story of Noah forms the core of the first two units. Unit 3 focuses on sequencing and sources include the miracle at Cana, the parable of the talents, the story of Jonah, the Good Samaritan, and the Prodigal Son. Unit 4 lessons have students read and summarize Paul on Charity, Jesus' Miracles, Christ's Last Words, along with stylistic exercises taken from Psalms. Custom pictures have been created for Unit 5 lessons (Esther, Daniel, Nativity, Paul's conversion), and Unit 6 uses the synoptic gospels to teach multiple reference summarizing. With Unit 7, a few creative writing opportunities are suggested, and Unit 8 continues the five paragraph model with essays on Job's suffering, Christ's condemnation by Pilate, and the duties of a Christian. Unit 9 presents an analysis of the books of Ruth and Jonah, as well as the story of David and Goliath.

    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

    For years, teachers and aspiring writers have asked Lee Roddy (author of "Grizzly Adams," countless short stories, and over 50 novels) to compile a guide from his 20 years of convention seminars. This is that much-anticipated guide. Whether adults use this book to instruct young students or utilize the guidelines to write a best-selling short story or novel of their own, the practical system for writing laid out in this guide will be beneficial. This is not a workbook, and it's not very fancy either, but it lays out a straightforward approach to writing which has been proven to work for the author and many others. It's filled with tips, outlines, suggestions, and rules for writing techniques that will get students to write proper stories and enjoy it as well. The guide begins with a helpful introduction that tells teachers how to use the book and then contains eight lessons on ideas, story building, objectives, obstacles, outcome, characters, plots, and scenes. Goals and the importance of these eight story aspects, outlines, ideas for writing, examples, and so much more are included in each lesson. The end of each lesson also includes a few short-answer questions and a simple writing assignment that will help them use what they have just learned in their own writing. An encouraging conclusion is also included in the guide, with the author giving final tips for making sure your writing is strong and successful. A handy guide presenting a solid method for writing fictional stories. 88 pgs.
