Winner of multiple awards and recipient of many enthusiastic mom-approved reviews, Institute for Excellence in Writing's Teaching Writing: Structure & Style is a video seminar for teachers/parents that presents a system of structural models and stylistic techniques that work for students of all ages. Stressing modeling and building a firm foundation of basic skills, students practice each format and develop confidence along with creativity.

Six DVDs are included with teacher training, as well as three 2-hour demonstrations of the first step being taught to students at three different grade levels. Simply watch the DVD and present that lesson to the student. The included Binder Workbook contains sample lesson plans, ideas, graphic organizers, support, examples and more information to make teaching as easy as possible.

Included student workshops on DVD also allow for grade-specific information to be taught alongside the nine units: 2nd-4th Graders learn about key word outlines, adverbs and strong verbs; 5th-7th graders learn how to write an outline from a report and dress up their writing with adverbs, noun clauses, strong verbs and more; 8th graders and more advanced students covers key word outlines, note taking, paragraph writing and study skills. A bonus "Tips and Tricks" DVD is included as well. See Teaching Writing More Product Information for detailed information on the nine units taught in this program.
