This course includes weekly vocabulary study and optional corresponding historical novels and literature response. In this class, students will practice IEW-style writing (based on Andrew Pudewa’s Institute for Excellence in Writing program) using ancient history-based writing lessons. This is a great class for students who have some IEW experience and want to continue reviewing and practicing writing from a source and using key word outlines, dress ups, and openers. The text sources in this class are ancient history-based, so students will learn some history and vocabulary while focusing on becoming skilled and confident independent writers. Discover and be amazed at the wonders of the ancient world while learning to write with structure and style!
This gradual approach reduces pressure and helps students focus on one new skill at a time. Avid writers and hesitant writers alike can benefit from strengthening structure and style in manageable steps. Students’ confidence soars as they master the skills necessary to organize and construct their essays, then unleash their creativity to build on that foundation. IEW has a brand new and much improved grammar program!
Home school conventions are around the corner, and curriculum sales abound! With so many homeschool products available, it is hard to decide what is the best curriculum. With over 25 years of homeschooling under my belt, I can honestly state that I have jumped on many bandwagons as new products evolved over time. My kids are learning do protein powders have creatine so much, and I LOVE how it is tied right into our history. I am a registered certified IEW instructor and have been using the curriculum with my own children for 5 years.
