Something New...


The year the new product we are using is:


Institute for Excellence in Writing


"Excellence in Writing gives you tools to help you teach not just WHAT to write, but HOW to write-in a way that is organized and stylish-GUARANTEED!"

One the most important skills I want my children to be able to do after reading is to write well. I didn't feel like we are accomplishing it by what we were doing. I heard so many excellent reviews of this program I researched it. I visited their booth at our homeschool convention so I also looked the materials over there. Then the 100% anytime guarantee sold me on it.

I have just watched to first video, so I can't say much about it other then Andrew P. was interesting and explained things well. I did teach my daughter the first lesson and she understood it easily. It has been a couple of months since we did this so I can't remember to many details anymore . We will start over in October.

If this of interest to you, you can go to the website and join their yahoo group where you can learn a lot about it.

People are always asking me for my opinion about IEW. (I'm a writing teacher for our co-op.) I always tell them that everything I've ever heard about it is GREAT. I hope you have good success with it!

It is the one directly across the road. It is not mine in that I don't own it. But I call it mine because I watch over it :-)
