Easy to use
We have used the Student Writing Intensives (SWI) for years. I like the video format of those, so I was a bit leery about using these Medieval Writing Lessons with NO video. However, the lesson plans are clearly written and follow the SWI format exactly. Also included in the plans and the appendix are extra ideas for making the class fun, such as review games and a ticket reward system. My boys (ages 12 & 14) are both dyslexic and do their outlines and writing on an i-pad. We did NOT use the student book, except to cut out the vocabulary cards, which are great for dyslexics with a cartoon drawing to show the meaning of the word on one side of the card and the definition and a sentence on the other.

I chose this because it's required for the writing section in Heart of Dakota Resurrection to Reformation.
Holly T on Sep 19, 2016
My children have been using IEW writing history based lessons for years. We find the system to be ideal for use with our co-op and valuable for our dysgraphic son, for whom the writing process is particularly painful. It gives him the structure he needs while reinforcing his history lessons.

We are using it with our Classical Conversations Essentials Grammar and Writing group. I wish someone had taught me to write using this method 40 years ago! We used the Ancient History Based Writing Lessons Last Year. Loved it!

This course is required through my co cop.
judy w on Aug 2, 2016
The theme-based writing from IEW is really all inclusive- vocab, writing and helpful tips and games for teacher. It is also beneficial bc we do the same history time period so it compliments their history.
Laura C on Jul 22, 2016
We are studying Medieval history this year with Tapestry of Grace and I thought this would be a good way to make more connections between subjects. I am watching the TWSS from IEW and it is so excellent - this seems like a good way to implement it.
Laura P on Jul 21, 2016
My daughter is taking a class using this writing book. The program is fantastic.
Kristen K on Jul 20, 2016
IEW's materials are even more user friendly now and I agree with Andrew Pudewa's teaching philosophy. We will use this study along with our study of the Middle Ages this year.

IEW is a writing curriculum that works very well to prepare upper elementary and middle school children for more advanced writing assignments in high school. We will use this along with Classical Conversations Essentials program.

This says 5th edition in the discription. Is that different from the 4th?
A shopper on Apr 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Per the publisher (changes in the 5th edition):
• The individual lessons have the added components of daily lesson plans and clearer weekly lesson goals.
• Source texts are either new or have been modified to include more regions of the world.
• The pacing of stylistic techniques has been adjusted so that students have success and enjoy the writing experience more.
• Advanced elements of Structure and Style have been placed in the Advanced Additions optional e-book, which is a free download with the purchase of the Student Book. This means that that the basic Student Book along with the Advanced Additions e-book is a perfect fit for all Level B students.
• Vocabulary words have been reevaluated to coincide with the dress-ups being taught in the lessons, making it easier for the students to use them in their lesson assignments.
• The lessons align with the updated version of Teaching Writing: Structure and Style, both in the order and manner in which elements of Structure and Style are taught.
• The new edition is not compatible with the former.
Is this a stand alone curriculumn or is something else needed?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is a stand alone curriculum as long as you have the teachers manual. It is helpful to have taken the "Teaching Writing: Structure and Style" course as it familiarizes you with IEW's style. But they do a very good job in the teachers manual of explaining each step so it can be done without having taken that course.
Is this 4th edition?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This is the 4th edition material.
