Great Concept
I love the IEW books as a way to teach kids to put things in their own words. This is a critical skill that a lot of people are lacking. The way in which the books teach children to write, is very helpful and easy to teach. I recommend starting in 4th grade so it's not overwhelming. But it isn't terribly difficult to catch on even in 7th grade.

Such a great idea for a History workbook
For a workbook, I really liked this one for my middle schooler. He did have to do a lot of writing, which he struggles with, but the lessons were well thought out and detailed, which I liked.

Excellent tool to help a students love for writing come to life.
With three sons the topic of Medieval times has been of great interest and likely spurred excitement and anticipation to a subject matter perhaps less desired. IEW has a way of pulling out ideas from the children with an easy to follow format. Now leading my third student through this text the means of gradually adding stylistic elements to writing as well as building vocabulary is key to this excellent resource!

Challenging but not overwhelming
This was my son's fifth year of IEW composition curriculum. (8th grade) Most lessons have two levels of assignments. Younger students or students new to IEW won't be overwhelmed. Older students will still be challenged. My son completed 27 of 30 lessons, because he had a few writing projects separate from this curriculum. He was able to complete most of each lesson by himself. I still reviewed his work at the end of each day to be sure that he was on task. I appreciated the checklist at the end of each lesson to help me assess each assignment objectively.

A great way to develop writing style with the added benefit of taking in some key historical knowledge.

IEW is the best writing curriculum out there. The methodical, consistent and creative way in which writing is taught gave my son the boost of confidence he needed to blossom in expression, style and vocabulary.

IEW is an excellent writing program. The pace is not overwhelming and is engaging.
Mia C on Aug 25, 2016
Excellent writing program - especially for boys who struggle with writing. At the end of the year they come away with a clear plan of how to write well. Each step builds upon itself a little more so the process never seems overwhelming.

Kara C on Jun 26, 2019
This edition cover looks like the new 2019 5th edition, but your website indicates 2016 4th edition. What Medieval History-Based Writing lessons edition is it and actually inventoried by Rainbow Resource? There is a lot of confusion out there especially for those who are sourcing specific editions for their home school co-op classes.
A shopper on Jan 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we are currently stocking the new 2019 5th edition as our graphic indicates. We'll get our description tweaked as soon as possible. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
Is this 4th edition compatible with my 3rd edition teacher's manual?
User on Nov 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: IEW tells us that the two editions are not compatible. Here is information from them about the 4th edition:

• We've worked to make sure this new edition aligns with the updated version of Teaching Writing: Structure and Style. The biggest change is that the structural units are now presented in order (Units 1–9).

• Lessons have been revamped, some with new source texts, and checklists have been updated.

• The Teacher’s Manual now includes student pages inset, such that a teacher would only need to buy the Teacher’s Manual, not both books.

• The pace is a bit more relaxed than in the previous edition, but for older, experienced IEW students, a free download is included that adds more advanced source texts and style challenges for many of the lessons.

• The new edition is not compatible with the old (due to the changes in multiple lessons).
