Product Description:

Sometimes a product is so intuitively genius that one is spellbound. That's my reaction to this deceptively simple idea. First of all, it is a succinct summary of the really important stuff that is covered in the Student Writing Intensive seminars unit synopses (models and checklists), dress-ups, sentence openers, decorations, and triple extensions. They've even managed to find a place to list all the "-ly" adverbs, synonyms for "said," strong verbs, etc. This is a great list to keep in mind while writing, and that brings us to the second aspect of genius in this product the fact that you can stand it up right before you. In fact, by standing it becomes a sort of mini wall divider (hence the name portable walls). Additionally, the whole affair can double as a carry-your-papers-to-co-op-class folder because there's an inside slip pocket for papers. There's enough basic and valuable information here that even if your student has never used IEW, their writing would probably improve just by setting up these "walls" and giving them a glance or two. New edition for 2016 has updated cover and layout. ~ Janice

I am always loosing the dress up print outs that I have for our IEW class, so I am getting the portable wall to help keep all the dress ups together and easier to find.

I am purchasing this updated writing tool for our membership in Essentials in Classical Conversations. It is an excellent tool. I am looking forward to the update. We have been in CC for over 10 years with multiple children.

These are very handy reference charts that can span several grades. My kids have referenced the same Portable Walls for multiple grades.
Sarah M on Aug 18, 2017
I'm teaching an IEW co-op class and this will be perfect for me to use at the front of the classroom while I am teaching. The Portable Walls are chock full of excellent words for the kids to use in their paragraphs and papers and other important reminders to keep in mind when you are writing.

How big is his? Does it have different info than the set of mini poster?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Fortable Walls is a three-sheet, 9"x12" cardstock trifold. It's designed to set up on a desk as a handy reference as the student is completing assignments. Information is more or less a duplication of the mini-posters.

Very Helpful!
These are most helpful when my children are doing their IEW assignments. But I also find them useful when they are distracting each other at other times too, lol.

This becomes more and more useful as students advance in the SWI or TWSS writing programs.
