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.

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)

I have taught SWI-A, Bible-Based Lessons,and Following Narnia. I will be teaching All Things Fun and Fascinating in the fall. I love how easy IEW's writing curriculum is to teach and how it breaks the art of writing down into manageable steps. I ordered AFF this spring and it was delivered very quickly!
Carrie G., Co-op Member
FINALLY! After trying 3 other programs and giving them a whole year's opportunity with no results, my 6th grade son is only 4 weeks into IEW and there is an enormous difference in the quality, clarity, and creativity of his writing! Why didn't I listen to my homeschool mom friends sooner? I looked at it and it seemed complicated. It's the exact opposite. The very detailed guide is why it's simple. My son no longer tries to avoid language arts. He is so excited to share his stories with people and finally feeling as proud of writing as he is of ...(more)

IEW offers some of the best writing and spelling products available today. Mr.Pudewa and his colleagues have put together a wonderful array of writing models and stylistic techniques with incredible student resources your kids will use through college. Both my kids love IEW and I also taught the IEW program at my church homeschool coop. I was teaching kids of all ages which IEW addresses easily. If you are able to participate in an IEW seminar with Mr. Pudewa it is well worth it! Mr. Pudewa is a gifted teacher who uses humor and fun stories ...(more)

My initial thought when researching IEW was wow, this curriculum is a little pricey . However, I found myself continually returning to the IEW website to learn more. Our family finally purchased the Teaching Writing: Structure and Style program along with the Fix It! Grammar books in February. We ve officially been using the curriculum for a solid 6 weeks and I love it! My boys ages 9 and 11 love it too! Gone are the sighs and the daily begging sessions to skip writing just for today . It's amazing what we have all learned in such a short ...(more)

I bought the Primary Language of Arts which is for the younger kids just learning how to read. After using it for about a month I have seen great improvement in my child's reading ability. He has struggled with learning to read and has done really great with this program. The fun games and repetition I think have been key. It has been kind of a learning curve for the both of us, and can be kind of overwhelming at first but has become routine now and we enjoy doing it. Thank you for these great projects. Also, I love that all about spelling is ...(more)
Kiana T,
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.
Amy, Co-op Member
I scored well in writing, and even had young articles published. I struggled giving that same sense of excitement in the art, and my children and I both faced frustrations when it came to making compositions.
We have had the IEW product now for a few weeks. I feel like the kids really benefit from the video lessons and reinforcing the learning objective each writing assignment. My struggling writer does not argue with me about the subject anymore, which I appreciate his new sense of confidence. My oldest enjoys writing, feeling like he has ...(more)
Nikki Estes, Co-op Member
I like this curriculum's process in writing. If you really think about it, the process will help your children learn to take notes in the future too. It helps the children to focus on the main points of every sentence and gather details which is necessary in writing, taking notes and alas those hated comprehensive reading tests. Those tests in some form or another that we cannot get away from. This program is going to be a great resource for my family. As a past teacher, I see the magnificent benefits this program has. Much better than how...(more)
Nancy Andrews, Co-op Member
We have used IEW before and my daughter was happy to return to it after frustrations with Sadlier Writing Workshop ,which is really meant for Classrooms. She is using the U.S. History based writing lessons. I really like the new layout of the student and teacher's manuals.
