This gem has been the best investment I have ever made! Prior to TWSS we had been working with some really 'cute' books to teach writing I can't even begin to describe the daily meltdowns from my very frustrated boys I couldn't understand how they 'just didn't get it' and I was even frustrated myself! For Pete's sake how can a book so full of cute graphics cause so much trouble?!? Since we embarked on our TWSS writing adventure my children haven't sprouted a bunch of halos and angel wings when it comes to writing but they are SO much more willing to work through their writing assignments! Their attitudes are now ones of empowerment They are now able to manipulate language to express what they were trying to write about They are writing far beyond what I expect for boys their ages (6 9 and 11)! Now all of that time wasted in meltdowns is more constructively spent - outside building ziplines from pulleys and playing capture the flag For me? I have the deep feelings of satisfaction knowing that I have equipped my children with something extremely powerful: the ability to put their own thoughts and ideas onto paper!

Institute for Excellence in Writing has opened my eyes! Having a gifted homeschooler has always been a challenge to me Probably the most challenging was writing I just could not get the writing out of him that he was capable of In fact I had my son watch and interact with the teacher's portion of the CD; and his next assignment was amazing He has utilized what he learned and now his writing is better than I ever expected My son is now an awesome writer We will continue to use the program and view the lectures through out his home schooling In addition my youngest son is enjoying learning how to use the key word outline And a 9 year old with an imagination can write some pretty funny stories with the aide of a key word outline In my seven years of homeschooling this is the best program for teaching writing to any grade level that I've seen

Institute for Excellence in Writing Seminar is well worth the investment of time and money If you suffer from feelings of inadequacy as a writing instructor like I did you need this program IEW demystifies the process of teaching writing It takes 10-12 hours of time to watch the DVD�s The teacher however presents his material in an amusing way that is easy to watch Clear models are given for various types of writing Checklists help teachers and students know what is expected and whether goals have been met Grading writing is no longer a struggle and a headache because of the checklists For the first time in ten years of Homeschooling after struggling and dreading teaching writing I am excited to use what I have learned from this program While it does take an investment of time and is not the cheapest program it will pay back your efforts exponentially for years to come

This curriculum is wonderful! For the first time ever I have actually heard my son say writing is kind of fun The instructions are so clear and concise that your child will no longer have to wonder what to write about or how to write it This program has been voted number 1 again and again for a good reason-it really works!

Great info in this set- and it's necessary to watch, AS THE TEACHER, in order to be able to effectively teach the material to your students. At times it seemed to draw on and take longer than I would have liked, but there is value in it nonetheless.

I was at a conference yesterday and had a chance to look through this material. I think it will be just what my struggling writer needs to help him feel comfortable with writing assignments.

What is included in this set? Is it A and B?
Tonya M on Aug 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The set comes with the 12 recorded seminar DVDs and the three-ring binder seminar and practicum notes/workbook. Not sure what you are referring to with A and B, but there are 9 units each under an individual tab as well as a tab for each "Writing about Literature," "Stylistic Techniques," and "Appendices." There is also a page that gives instructions for downloading blackline masters of reproducible pages.

I am using the course to prepare for teaching U.S. History Based Writing Lessons (a separate purchase with teacher guide and student book) to my child. It has been quite beneficial already in clarifying what we will be doing in the writing lessons book.
Does this product include the 3 student writing intensives or would those be ordered separately?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This set includes three short (1 hr) introductory workshops. The same material (note making and writing from notes) is presented for each of the three grade ranges. Similar content is included in the Student Writing Intensive video courses but the SWI courses are much broader and cover more material. Normally, you would order the SWI workshop(s) in addition to the TWSS.
