Teaching units include thesis statements, essay organization, transitions, introductions, and conclusions and end with descriptive and persuasive essay practice. Revised for 2011, the Teacher's Manual is now separate from the Student Book and includes additional teacher material specifically useful for co-op classes - class schedules and more information on teaching methods. Student Books contain the student pages from the previous edition with additional pages for taking class notes. The two books are designed to be interactive, and both are required to complete the course successfully.

We've enjoyed IEW products thus far. This seemed like a good place to go next.
Tara S on Jun 28, 2018
IEW is the most effective program that I have found to teach my children HOW to write. After years of wasting time with other writing recommendations, we are finally making progress with IEW.
Nicole H on Mar 3, 2018
I have used IEW for several years. It is wonderful. We skipped the Elegant Essay and went onto the Literary analysis. We are now coming back to the elegant essay to pick up some missing skills. I wish we would have done this one first.

This was purchased for my 9th grade daughter. She is a homeschooled student.
Kimberly K on Sep 15, 2016
LOVE IEW and have used it throughout the years so this was another step to great writers.
David F on Sep 4, 2016
IEW is the go-to for writing. Hoping this can get my technically perfect writer to expound on her thoughts more.
Wendy J on Aug 24, 2016
A friend highly recommended this essay writing curriculum and said that it prepared her kids for college level writing.
Chelsie M on Aug 22, 2016
Our evaluator recommended this series. As my children have learned to write reports and such, they've needed more guidance with their opening and closing paragraphs. The Elegant Essay teachings should strengthen those skills.
Genna W on Aug 15, 2016
Excellent writing program
Robyn D on Aug 10, 2016
Highly recommended for my HS freshman son; looks like a great fit with his NCFCA Speech goals.

In a co-op and this is the curriculum that was chosen

While my high school student has the basics of writing down, I thought this book would help her hone her essay writing skills in a more organized way than we have done thus far.

Disorganized and not engaging
I tried really hard to like the "Elegant Essay" book, but I have never had books that I hated so much! This was purchased to use for my high school student as part of our English curriculum. Even though I am a writer and have always enjoyed English, I thought I'd try this set as a new approach to helping my student with essay writing. First of all, the information is SO discombobulated! It's all split between the student book and the teacher manual and it requires a LOT of prepping beforehand just to figure out what to teach from which book. Some of the material is presented like the author is the teacher and some of it is obviously supposed to be the parent/teacher presenting, and it's all just a mess that I found extremely frustrating. My student found the author to be "out-of-touch" and couldn't relate to most of the examples and prompts. So the whole thing was frustrating for both of us. Maybe this series makes sense as part of a larger curriculum, but it definitely didn't work well for us. A teacher who isn't strong in their own writing skills would certainly have a hard time using this book to teach.
