I’ve had a few people who are new to IEW ask me, “What is this IEW Writing thing I keep hearing about?” So I made a short video to explain what it is, and why I like it so much. If you’re more of a reader than a “watcher,” here it is in a nutshell:
Institute For Excellence In Writing
IEW stands for Institute for Excellence in Writing, a writing program designed by Andrew Pudewa, who teaches his methods around the world.
Take the Guesswork out of Writing
IEW is a writing program that encourages even the most reluctant writers to write because it begins with simple, step-by-step tools that take the guesswork out of writing.
Dress It Up
With IEW, students never have to stare at a blank page wondering what to write. We start by reading a source (article) together, then take key word outline notes, orally rehearse how we might write a paragraph from the outline, and eventually “dress up” our writing with dress ups and openers that make writing more sophisticated and interesting.
Increase Confidence and Encourage Independence
The program is designed to help students gradually become more confident, independent writers
