Homeschool Writing Curriculum: IEW (Institute for Excellence in Writing)
Multi-grade Homeschool Writing Curriculum
Looking for a multi-grade homeschool writing curriculum? Homeschooling mom teaches several grades at once with Institute for Excellence in Writing...
IEW homeschool writing curriculum is by far the most user friendly "Writing Course". It can be used by large families for several grade at once. It's also perfect for group teaching. I teach grades 3/5/6/8.
IEW is a bit pricey, but the investment pays off. The cds/text can be used over and over. We start off using it every year, just to refresh. The techniques learned carry over to other forms of good communication. LOVED IT!!!!!

The Excellence in Writing course has been such a blessing. My 12 year old son never cared much for writing, but Andrew Pudewa from IEW not only teaches the writing process, but adds humor and fun. It didn't take long at all for my son's writing to come alive. We used the Level B book along with the cd's and paid $99. It was well worth the investment!
Thanks for sharing about Andrew Pudewa's Excellence in Writing homeschool writing curriculum, Cindy! I have never used this program but know others who do and love it as well. Thanks for taking the time to help others! Blessings, Heather :)

Homeschool Writing Curriculum Review: Institute for Excellence in Writing/Teaching Writing: Structure and Style/Student Writing Intensive

IEW Homeschool Writing Curriculum Review
Don't let this technical title intimidate you, Moms! This homeschool writing curriculum is the absolute best, step-by-step, "make it easy for us all", approach to teaching writing on the market!
I am a "veteran" homeschooling mother with 15 years service and a troop of 7 soldiers, I mean, students. I have tried several writing curriculums over the years only to end up with a 14 year old son who hated writing!
I had heard great things of IEW, but always balked at the initial price. In hindsight, I would have saved myself hundreds of dollars, along with all the wasted time and effort, that was spent on these less expensive curriculums. Incidentally, IEW offers an unconditional, no-time-limit, money-back guarantee on all their products, so you have nothing to lose. They even pay for the return shipping!
Teaching Writing: Structure and Style is a series of lectures on DVD, given by the highly-entertaining Mr. Andrew Pudewa, that instructs the parent how to teach writing to his or her student. The Student Writing Intensive is Mr. Pudewa teaching writing to your student, while you are learning through TWSS.
After a few short lessons, writing became my son's favorite "subject", as he couldn't wait to hear what Mr. Pudewa was going to teach next. Mr. Pudewa expertly makes the case not only for the importance of writing, but why writing should not be taught as its own subject, but be incorporated as a tool to learn all the other subjects.
One year later, I have a 15 year old son who can now confidently write about any subject and enjoys doing it. He is also becoming an excellent communicator as these "writing" skills have spilled over into all areas of his personal development and education. I've discovered that this course is really so much more than just a writing curriculum.
Excellent review of the Institute for Excellence in Writing, Joy! Thanks for sharing your detailed review of IEW and how it has benefited your son. Your experience and insight will be very helpful to other parents who are looking for a homeschool writing curriculum that works! Blessings, Heather
