    College-bound high school students are expected to write essays. Of the many, there are two essays that are "once-in-a-lifetime" experiences – the SAT essay and the college entrance essay. These are very specific types of writing tasks and are quite different. One is a timed response to a prompt. It must be completed quickly, coherently, and legibly. 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 these writing experiences. Andrew Pudewa, in his own inimitable style, shows you how in this entertaining, six-hour seminar. This video seminar is contained within a four DVD set – two discs each covering the SAT essay and the college entrance essay. There is a bonus CD-ROM disc providing all the necessary handouts in PDF format to be printed prior to watching. These PDF handouts are also available in printed format in the Student Workbook. Also included on the bonus disc is an audio essay preparation seminar by Julie Walker in MP3 format.

    Discussion of the SAT essay includes an examination of the six-point scoring rubric - critical thinking skills, reasoning examples, language and vocabulary, sentence structure, organization and focus, and grammar, usage and mechanics - as well as analysis of scored essays and specific preparation strategies.

    Starting with an overview of what colleges are looking for in essays, the discussion of the college entrance essay progresses to an analysis of samples as well as specific writing strategies including the TRIAC model.

    As expected, the most important preparation activity for these two types of essays is to write - a lot. You can, nevertheless, make the best use of your preparation writing activities by utilizing the strategies presented in this seminar. ~ 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

    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

    Maybe Dave Marks can't grade all our Writing Strands assignments, but his book will help. Common writing problems and how to fix them are discussed. The bulk of the book is devoted to reviewing assignments actually written by students, with commentary about the writing and what steps the teacher should take. How to correct problems like repeating words, "Dick and Jane" writing, ambiguity, tense errors, sentence fragments and run-ons, and a wide variety of other writing weaknesses are addressed. The book first shows a rough draft a student has written and then includes remarks the parent or teacher has made. Both the draft and the remarks are commented on so parents can see how best to evaluate all different types of writing. The book recommends that comments made on student writing be straightforward and to the point. Evaluation is provided for using Writing Strands 2 - 5 for grades 2 - 8, although this book could be used as a teacher resource regardless of the curriculum used.

    Teaches high school seniors expository writing through 13 varied exercises. It focuses on teaching the academic papers that colleges require. Activities include using all the facilities in a library and arranging a mass of information, writing various argument essays, writing a compare/contrast essay, supporting hypothesizes, reaction papers, biased papers, propaganda, term papers, reviews on magazines, and more. The exercise format varies depending on the type of writing but generally takes writers through steps they need to take to develop strong papers. Pitfalls to avoid, organization, where to get information, writing styles, and more are covered. A good portion of the book is composed of examples of finished papers following the same outline the book describes. By comparing their own writing to that in the book, students can see how and where they need to improve. Appendix includes explanations of the expository writing process, a section on the SAT II writing test, essay prompts, and how to avoid writing problems. By Dave Marks, author of Writing Strands. 146 pgs, pb.

    This is a journal made specifically for journal writing. The book itself is ready to be written in, with the top 1/3 of every page blank and the bottom 2/3 of the pages lined. The inside front cover has a list of frequently misspelled words and the inside back cover is a place for students to create their own word list. Although a teaching guide was available at one time, at this time, only the student journal is available. The overall idea is to get students journaling as an aid in developing their literacy skills. ~ Zach

    The way you introduce poetry to young students can make a huge difference in the way they approach poetry for years to come. This workbook helps you introduce students to poetry as a fun, creative chance to write down their thoughts and feelings in silly or meaningful poems. The first few pages present the different kinds of poems covered, so the teacher can gain familiarity with the examples and the unique qualities of each poem. Then worksheets are given to introduce students to the different poems, including couplets, free verse, haikus, limericks, acrostics, sensory poems, personal poems, chants, and much more. The worksheets provide students with simple ways to get started writing poetry, from making word lists, to answering questions, to completing frameworks. Templates are given for each different kind of poetry covered, and students will enjoy completing them. Pages near the end hold lots of seasonal patterns and stationery for young students to work on. A very light, but complete introduction to creative poetry for young students. Reproducible, 96 pgs. - Melissa
