Since beginning to homeschool my five kids in 2008, I’ve been through loads of curriculum! And now that I’ve been able - through trial and error - to figure out what works, I’d love to save you the headache. IEW materials really do work. They work because they are written with the homeschool family in mind. The resources are open and go and are easy to teach. IEW also provides support for the homeschool parent. Whether it’s through podcast episodes or writing workshops, you’re sure to find the help you need to raise successful writers. Here are my favorite IEW products and Andrew Pudewa podcast episodes. I’ll be sure to add more as we use more IEW resources in our homeschool!
