Institute for Excellence in Writing

by Christina Parrott
(Beckville, Texas, USA)

The Student Writing Intensive contains four DVDs, a binder with dividers, and a packet with teacher notes, handouts, and checklists.

Each level (A,B,C) requires no previous experience, they differ in the source texts used, speed of presentation, and vocabulary. You can use level B if you are teaching mixed ages together.

The program can be extended or supplemented by using the Theme-Based or History-Based reources which allows you to tie in or reenforce history, science, composer studies, character training, and Bible lessons with your writing.


Review:

My daughter started using this program at 13 beginning with very limited writing skills and a loathe for writing. Her spelling and vocabulary were also not as advanced as I would have liked.

She enjoyed listening and watching Andrew Pudewa's DVDs. He is very engaging for kids of all ages. He presents the information in a very simple manner and gradually progresses to more difficult tasks allowing the student to move at his/her own pace.

My daughter now writes and speaks well. She has also improved her vocabulary, spelling, ability to use a thesaurus and dictionary.

She now loves writing!!!
