This product makes it possible to teach writing.
November 19, 2010
I am only on the 2nd DVD at this point, but am very impressed. Finally, after 18 years of homeschooling, I feel as though I have step-by-step guidelines on teaching writing. My four boys actually seem to enjoy the process because they know what they are supposed to accomplish. At least I am not hearing the usual groans from them! I wish I had known about this program with my first six children. Mr. Pudewa is enthusiastic about his subject and speaks in an entertaining way. He makes good writing seem attainable. He makes teaching writing seem possible. I know I haven't gotten too far into the program, but I am very optimistic that I will be able to teach this to my children and that they will learn how to write.
There just isn't a better writing program. This is not a curriculum but a style or technique of teaching students to write well. It is good for all levels ages 6-adult. I use the technique within all my subjects and it has enabled me to drop having a separate writing program. Writing becomes part of the learning process. Basically, students using this technique gain confidence in their own writing skills. Also, it provides the tools for study, comprehension, and analyzing differing works of literature. Beginning at the basic level of outlining and re-writing a literary piece, the Institute for Excellence in Writing branches out to encompass the timed SAT essay and then into literary analysis. I put off purchasing this due to cost for years, I wish I had not. Now that I have I am putting it to good use.
