This is a great program that gets them practicing writing in a very organized way. I agree kids should not learn to write by just doing creative writing, but they DO need to practice writing. This program teaches them how to compose using non-fiction material in a methodical pattern that makes sense. It is easy to implement with BOTH of my children, and I like that as well.

EdmontonianEdmonton, Alberta, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Finally, a comprehensive but gentle system!March 1, 2011EdmontonianEdmonton, Alberta, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What a relief to find a writing program that gets my child writing without the grief. Mr. Pudewa is very intelligent and gentle, and he uses his skills for the benefit of all who take his program.
I would advise other users of the program to take it step by step. In other words, the proper way is to watch a teeny slice of the video, and then spend several days applying it, and doing the extra exercises, then play a bit more of the video, etc.
Shari Drennan5 Stars Out Of 5March 24, 2008Shari DrennanI bought this program to try the IEW idea. He said that this program could stand alone so you don't have to buy the bigger package to try it out. I have 3 boys and they are already very intimidated by writing. This is so easy that they are having a hard time keeping it simple. I love the teaching my kids the structure of writing before asking them to work creatively. I have every confidence that they will grow up able to write what ever and when ever necessary.
Q: Does this package come with 4 or 5 DVDs? In the product picture, there are 5 DVDs, but the description only has 4 DVDS listed. Is the Structure and Style DVD included in this purchase?
This does contain the Structure and Style Overview DVD for a total of 5 DVDs in the kit.
Q: Is this a good program for stuggling TEACHERS?! I love homeschooling, but the one subject that makes my stomach churn is writing. It wasn't my best subject (I'm a science/math type) and it is so subjective that I don't really know what to expect out of a paper, so I have trouble grading (am I asking for too much, should he know "this" or do I come back to this later and let the error go for now..) that sort of thing. I've tried many programs and even tried to get outside help, but it was very expensive and not very productive. This is expensive to me. I'm totally willing to spend it for a good answer to my needs, but I dread forking out that much money for more disappointment.
This curriculum is designed to teach the student directly and provides clear instruction for them. It would be most helpful if you view the DVDs with your student.
