Some might have thought there was a "hole" in the IEW line-up of writing instruction. But no longer! If your students have proven adept at writing essays but not quite made the jump into research-based writing, perhaps it's because you've been "waiting" for this course. Regardless, I'm sure I'm not the only one that is happy to see a detailed instruction manual for research papers coming from IEW. I'm especially thrilled to see such thorough and comprehensive step-by-step instruction through three increasingly difficult levels of research papers beginning (11-12 week course covering essential writing tools), intermediate (9 week course covering essential research tools), and advanced (a stand alone course covering advanced research tools). A teaching time schedule is provided for each of these three parts. The topics you would expect are here - note-taking, outlining, thesis development, citations/quotations, plagiarism, revision. But some topics you don't always see are here as well "prompt" analysis, evaluating online research, and incorporating style, for instance. The Teacher Book is written with the idea that the teacher/parent may not consider writing to be her strength providing detailed lesson plans that interweave with the information in the Student Book for each topic/lesson. A four-step teaching methodology is employed: preliminary instruction, modeling, practice with help, and on your own. Grading rubrics for specific skills are provided as well as general philosophical information on grading papers. A satisfying number of models are provided to help the insecure paper-grading homeschool mom/teacher (Yay!). The Student Book, written directly to the student in Lesha Myers' warm, personal style, is also a worktext and reference manual. Appendices include teaching models from the various chapters. Purchase of the course entitles its owner to a free download of Graphic Organizers and Grading Sheets & Checklists (e-books). Student (268 pgs) Teacher 188 pgs, both spiral-bound. ~ Janice
