Product Description

Bible Heroes: Writing Lessons in Structure and Style provides children with Bible-based writing lessons that follow the methods of the Institute for Excellence in Writing's Teaching Writing: Structure and Style course.

Designed for students in grades 1-2, but adaptable through 5th grade (IEW Level A), this book contains 27 lessons that introduce the TWSS models of structure (TWSS Units 1-7) and elements of style such as "dress-ups." Units cover: key word outlining; writing from key word outlines; summarizing narrative stories; summarizing references (reports); writing from pictures; and creative writing. Lessons focus on godly men and women of the Bible, and show students how they can apply godly virtues to their lives. Each lesson includes a Bible verse, while games and activities provide a way to engage students.

This book also comes with access to a free download of the accompanying Bible Heroes Writing Lessons Teacher's e-Book and the Student Resource Notebook. The Teacher's e-book is a vital component of this course, and includes detailed lesson instructions, a scope and sequence, ideas for discussing heroes and virtues, answers to review questions, samples, instructions for games, copies of checklists, and more.

Reproducible for in-family use. 221 pages, spiral-bound softcover including cut-apart cardstock items for style helps, games, and vocabulary cards. Designed for grades 1-2; can be used up to grade 5.

    I bought this to use with my 3rd and 5th grade homeschoolers. My 5th grader has dyslexia and an auditory processing disorder but the IEW program works well for him. Both of my students enjoyed writing about Bible characters and the IEW method of imitating good writing empowers my students and helps them experience success in their writing. My only critique would be that the source texts could do a little better job of making God the hero of every story instead of man. This was easy to adjust by telling my students they needed to include a clincher statement at the end of each story that showed how God was the hero.

Q: How do I access the Downloadable Teacher's Manual??? Please let me know how I am supposed to access the Teacher's Manual. I have purchased directly form IEW, in the past, and was able to access the downloadable items from their site. How would I do so for this item, if not purchased from their site? Do you have an area that I should go to or a pass code, etc. ????


There is a blue sheet of paper in the front of the book titled, "Accessing Your Downloads". This page gives you instructions for how to download related items.
