Think, Write, Communicate

Discover this award-winning approach to teaching students how to write well, think clearly, and communicate effectively!

Essential for success in today's fast-paced world, mastering writing and communication skills will serve students during their school years, into college, and throughout their adult lives, including the workplace. Learning to write well teaches students how to think clearly and communicate effectively in every area of life.

IEW materials feature easy to use, step-by-step instructions, and offer programs for all grade levels. IEW's unique approach was designed to provide the structure that students need to develop confidence in the writing process, while gradually guiding them toward greater independence and creativity. IEW focuses on nine structural models (note taking, writing paragraphs, stories, simple reports, writing from pictures, research reports, creative writing, essays, and critiques) to help the learner organize any type of composition. Additionally, stylistic techniques (strong verbs, quality adjectives, sentence openers, and more) are taught incrementally to gently move students from the basics into more sophisticated writing.

My grandchildren, ages 5 through 10, have really enjoyed poetry memorization with IEW. The 10 year old boy has been particularly smitten with poetry and enjoys writing and memorizing his own poetry.
Sherry K,
I had been on the fence for years about purchasing IEW. It seemed so scary to me and the price was prohibitive due to my inability to fully commit to it. When a friend told me that homeschool buyers co-op had an offer, I decided to take the leap!!! Now my only regret is that I didn't do this earlier!! My "I hate to write" son loves the video instruction and has found the assignments quite doable. We are looking ahead to next year to add more IEW material to our program!
Amy R., Co-op Member
What a great program so far. My girls and I are having so much fun. You have taken the work out of writing. My girls actually enjoy and look forward to IEW. We will continue for years and tell our friends how great this program is.
Thank you!!
Sheila P., Co-op Member
IEW is a worthy investment! My kids were 8 and 10 when we began using IEW'S History based writing, Medieval Times and Bible Heroes, after I completed Pudawa's Teaching Structure and Style video course.

Teaching Structure and Style is an irreplaceable tool. One of many tools presented is Easy + 1, a very simple concept, yet a crucial one, that made me realize that I had been introducking material too fast. Whether the material is new or a refresher, Pudawa's delivery is delightfully entertaining.

The HBW books can be adjusted for vario...(more)

I just wanted to let yall know we got this and have been using it. Honestly I would LOVE to do a review on this thing. IEW WORKS - and it's not scary! They don't ask a lot at a time! It's all taken in BABY STEPS. Instead of here is how to write a paper - now go write one, they start with rewriting paragraphs. NOTHING ELSE had even come close to working with us. Writing brought my son to tears before. NOW when IEW tells him he can use his own creativity to change something he is EXCITED! Plus - I learned I was being a bit harsh with my ...(more)

My boys and I struggled with writing in the past until we decided to use IEW. I love the simplicity of the method and all the resources available to help me teach my boys to not only learn to write but enjoy it. We have been using IEW for 2 years now and plan to continue using it with the rest of my kids.
M.V., Co-op Member
I am so excited about this program. We are working through the poems together as a family. It not only encourages the memorization and recitation; it allows each child to personalize and be as dramatic as possible. Truly fun times in our learning! I'm hoping the younger children will get through the entire program and that even the ones graduating in the next couple of years will join me in continuing this challenge.
K. Burns, Co-op Member
This by far is one of the best writing programs I have used in my home school with my son. He is autistic but fully, for once, is getting and using a writing process that involves questioning, researching, using dictionary and thesaurus but more importantly the pride in his work has increased. We laugh. We struggle, We write. And in the end, we are unequivocally pleased with what we are getting. A love for written expression is a need for all children. I am glad I made this purchase.
A. Hosch, Co-op Member
I have been teaching my twin 10 year old girls since mid third grade. I took the advice of another homeschooling mom and went for another DVD based English/Writing program. I have struggled with it ever since. It is too hard for me to explain the writing portions and I feel like I am basically doing the work for them.
I decided to try IEW but wanted to start with just one book to see if it was something we liked and could do together with them doing most of their own work and me just guiding. We started with the Fix-It books. We LOVE them. T...(more)
Candy Wright, Co-op Member
We have enjoyed the poems and memorizing them as a family. My 3 and 5 year sons like coloring the pictures while listening to the poem on repeat.
