Going all the way through IEW, what doesn't it teach that you would want to touch on at some point?

I think it would help if you defined "all the way".  IEW has a lot of pieces to their overall writing process.  Are you talking about just the primary writing program, Teaching Writing Structure and Style/Student Writing Intensive  (IEW TWSS/SWI)?   TWSS plus the continuation course (SICC)?  or do you mean also using a significant number of the components that are also offered...

I meant...  "just the primary writing program, Teaching Writing Structure and Style/Student Writing Intensive  (IEW TWSS/SWI)."   And maybe...  "the continuation course (SICC)."

 

Not  ALL of the IEW as a company (with all of their Lit. and Grammar, etc.), but as a Writing Program, as quoted above.

 

ETA:  And just Andrew Pudewa materials.  I have not read good reports about some of the others, such as Elegant Essay.

 

 

I don't know why I thought everyone could read my mind.  :)

The only thing I really think that needs to be focused on in greater detail is research papers.  We did use IEW's Research Paper program and that has worked really well.

 

I do have to say that I loved the Elegant Essay too but it really needs to be done after the student has a strong handle on the IEW process to be really successful.

I have not used Elegant Essay but I have known others to use it and love it, FWIW.

 

As for what is missing from the main writing program, I agree, maybe the research paper but they have something specifically for that so you could roll that in after completing the main program and its continuation course.

IEW is very weak with Invention. IEW is great about teaching how to rewrite someone else’s thoughts; however, it doesn’t systematically teach the thinking and prewriting activities.

Thanks

I'll keep this in mind.
