Category Description for Theme-Based Writing Lessons (IEW):

Based on specific topics or on events in history, these sets of writing lessons (same grade-range levels as the SSS) offer comprehensive, almost scripted instruction. All necessary source texts have been developed for busy parents and teachers like you. An IEW veteran and aficionado myself, I couldn't conceive of anything more complete than what is provided here. Each lesson offers comprehensive (just short of totally scripted) instruction. All necessary source texts are provided and are reproducible for one parent/one homeschool. Clear assignments (sometimes differentiated between levels) along with a checklist to aid both the student in preparation and the parent in grading. These are also designed to be used by the student to work on throughout the week. Based on specific topics or events in various segments of history, the lessons include grammar exercises, vocabulary development, quizzes, and games for review and reinforcement - along with the writing instruction, of course.

In all lessons students are encouraged to polish their final draft perhaps even adding illustrations. At the end of each course the student will have a personal portfolio collection of poems, stories, reports, essays and research papers. Lessons are taught at the beginning of each week allowing the rest of the week for students to complete the assignment which they should be able to do on their own. Teacher preparation is minimal. (Do I hear an emphatic "Yes!"?)

The courses are targeting a progressively more competent student with the assumption that students are working through the courses according to suggested grade levels. Therefore, there is an increasing complexity to the instructions, expectations, and assignments. Accordingly, teachers are encouraged to be flexible with plans. The beginning writer may need to spend more than the suggested week on difficult lessons or omit some of the grammar. Mature students may move more quickly to allow time for additional research writing and/or more creative essay writing.

Many of these courses can be used equally well within a homeschool with several different aged students and all can be used in a co-op/support school setting with more grade-specific groupings of students. It's assumed that parents/teachers have completed Teaching Writing Structure & Style (TWSS), IEW's DVD seminar for parents and teachers.

Some courses have both a Teacher and a Student Book. In these courses, instruction for the teacher is more extensive and both books are necessary as the course is designed to be interactive between the teacher and student. Teachers should plan to read over the lessons with the students and help as necessary, especially with outlining and brainstorming. A roll of tickets (available at office supply stores) is optional but very useful for encouragement and motivation. ~ Janice

I've used IEW writing curriculums before and the reviews for this version were good.

is this (teacher lesson plans) really the teacher e-book in a printed format?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, it isn't. This set of lesson plans has been prepared/published by Memoria Press. These plans are a summary of the plans written by IEW but are formatted into a schedule that works well with the Memoria Press' Classical Core Curriculum for third grade. They have edited the lesson plans for completing only the first seven lessons.

Not worth the $5.00, in my opinion. It’s just a little over a page of the same info you’ll find on the Contents page in the IEW book, except they formatted it into square boxes.
It might be useful for someone who visually needs the Scope And Sequence formatted into boxes by week and feels $5.00 is worth it to have it reformatted, but just know they’re not giving you any additional info or lesson plan ideas that’s not already provided in the IEW books.
A pic from Rainbow Resources of at least week 1 would be helpful to give an idea of what you’re actually getting.
