Essentials in Writing for High School


Recommended Posts

If you have used EIW for high school, do you feel it is “enough” for Language Arts? Like would it prepare my child for college- level writing? I would add some type of literature, also, but as far as writing... wdyt?

We did IEW with our kids. It was a great foundation for them. For the ones that ended up taking composition classes at MPOA, I think they are ready for college level. One of mine didn't take comp and I felt like they maybe were not quite ready, but it's hard to say. I'd add a comp class if possible. We had a great experience with it, and they had a lot of fun writing.

Essentials in Writing is different than IEW. I have done IEW but looking for a change.

I had my daughter do the Essentials in Writing book last year in 11th grade.  This year, she was taking English through the community college for dual credit.  I honestly don't feel that EIW prepared her enough for it.  The CC class was pretty strict about using peer-reviewed, college level sources, as well as in-text citations,  and that was a big jump for my daughter.   For my younger kids,  I'm going to research and find something more heavy to help them be better prepared.  Just not sure what yet?
