Ask Andrew Anything: Podcast Episode 210

Mar 19, 2020 | Posted by the IEW Blog Team


It’s that time again! Every tenth podcast is set aside so that listeners can “ask Andrew anything.” In podcast Episode 210 listeners asked the following questions:

  • Do I really need the teacher-training course, Teaching Writing: Structure and Style, if my students are using video-based instruction?
  • Do I need to teach spelling every year through high school if I have a natural speller?
  • Why do each of your new courses and theme-based books start back at Unit 1?
  • Are all of the essay styles, e.g., narrative, expository, persuasive, covered by IEW?
  • Do I need to teach literature every year? Why or why not?
  • What do you recommend for a student who has several years of IEW writing but who needs to focus more on persuasive writing?
  • What is your favorite IEW program and why?
  • How many different ties did you wear for the SSS filming?
  • What are some ways you’ve been successful with building a good rapport with difficult students, especially teenagers?
  • Do you have any former students of notable status?

From writing to spelling to literature and more, Andrew addresses it in this podcast. Listen to his informed responses, infused with his usual bit of humor, in the podcast.
