This session is designed for teachers, parents, or tutors who have been using the basic IEW program, Teaching Writing: Structure and Style, and wish to deepen their understanding of the syllabus through a practice-filled, interactive day with Mr. Pudewa.

Each of the IEW structural units will be reviewed and expanded upon, including

  • note making and summarizing from notes; limiting skills
  • summarizing narrative stories with the Story Sequence Chart
  • summarizing references (without copying the encyclopedia)
  • library research reports using multiple references and fused outlines
  • topic/clincher paragraph format, techniques for titling
  • creative writing, letters, writing from pictures, author imitation
  • formal essays and critique formats

We will also review and develop all the stylistic techniques:

  • tips and tricks for teaching and expanding dress-ups
  • teaching advanced sentence openers
  • how to judiciously choose literary decorations

With plenty of time for Q&A, this is an ideal chance to re-energize your teaching year.
