    The Student Writing Intensive course is based on Teaching Writing: Structure and Style, and provides a solid foundation of writing skills through direct writing instruction. This Level C course is designed for high school students (grades 9-12) and presumes no previous experience in the IEW writing method; it differs from the other levels in the type of texts used, speed of presentation, and vocabulary level.

    This four-DVD student course covers 15-30 weeks, and was recorded live with Andrew Pudewa. It teaches students how to use a wide range of structural models and stylistic techniques as they learn to write paragraphs, stories, reports, and creative writing pieces.

    The handout packet includes a scope & sequence, complete teacher's notes, source texts, assignments, and checklists. Each lesson indicates what portion of the disc to watch at each sitting; after the lesson, students use the checklists to complete the assignment. Extra practice assignments plus lessons that don't require the DVD are also included. Each lesson begins with teacher's notes that include a chart notating what to watch on the DVD with viewing times, step-by-step lesson instructions, reinforcement exercises, lesson handouts and practice handouts, and whiteboard notes from the DVD.

    Students can apply new grammar knowledge and practice their editing skills with the Fix it! series.
