    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.

    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

    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

This program also includes three public speaking opportunities – telling stories from key word outlines. This volume is primarily a student book, with information provided inside to download a free accompanying teacher's manual at iew.com. Student pages can be reproduced for a family or classroom. ~ Janice

    It seems I'm part of a growing number of people who prefer to purchase a hardcopy book rather than rely on downloading and printing. If you're with me, you'll be glad to know that IEW has started publishing this notebook (long available as a free download to those who have purchased their courses). Used as a resource for all of their theme-based writing lessons, it's also a good reference for any student using the IEW method of writing. Included are reference pages for stylistic techniques, models of structure, strong verbs, -ly words, quality adjectives, five senses/emotions, decorations, transitional words/phrases, grammar rules, and charts/checklists. Spiral-bound with updated layout for 2016. ~ 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.

    In this fast-paced world, not everyone has time to read long explanations, and writers must be able to write concise, informative, and easy-to-read paragraphs. Recommended by the Institute for Excellence in Writing, this book shares everything you need to know about writing effective paragraphs. In an organized, straight-to-the-point way, it first describes paragraphs in general, telling about the history, definition, function, length, development, topic sentence, unity, coherence, and organizing of paragraphs. Then the majority of the book explains and offers examples for 30 distinct types of paragraphs (chronological, descriptive, spatial, analogy, comparison, opinion, narrative, introductory, etc.). For each type of paragraph, a chapter describes the paragraph, tells when it is best used, gives a great example of that style of paragraph, analyzes the example paragraph, and gives a number of helpful tips for writing the featured type of paragraph. This is a great reference for seeing how to write different paragraphs and perfect for showing students that there is more to paragraphs than just a topic sentence and supporting details. 186 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
