    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.

    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

    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

    Fables, Myths, and Fairy Tales by Maria Gerber is enjoyable from start to finish. This course covers TWSS units 1-7 with students learning (in 27 lessons) how to take notes, summarize narrative stories, summarize references, write from pictures and compose their own fables, myths and fairy tales. 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.

    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

    Sometimes a product is so intuitively genius that one is spellbound. That's my reaction to this deceptively simple idea. First of all, it is a succinct summary of the really important stuff that is covered in the Student Writing Intensive seminars – unit synopses (models and checklists), dress-ups, sentence openers, decorations, and triple extensions. They've even managed to find a place to list all the "-ly" adverbs, synonyms for "said," strong verbs, etc. This is a great list to keep in mind while writing, and that brings us to the second aspect of genius in this product – the fact that you can stand it up right before you. In fact, by standing it becomes a sort of mini wall divider (hence the name – portable walls). Additionally, the whole affair can double as a carry-your-papers-to-co-op-class folder because there's an inside slip pocket for papers. There's enough basic and valuable information here that even if your student has never used IEW, their writing would probably improve just by setting up these "walls" and giving them a glance or two. New edition for 2016 has updated cover and layout. ~ 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.

    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

    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
