Oct 07, 2021 | Posted by the IEW Blog Team

With the advent of another tenth episode, we return yet again to a fan favorite: Ask Andrew Anything. In this show, Episode 290, Andrew answers the following questions:

  • What do you say to a student who spends more time writing symbols rather than key words for the key word outline?

  • Should I insist my students correctly use new stylistic techniques, or simply let them play with them in their writing?

  • If a student is struggling with EZ+1, should I allow him to skip some of the past “easier” stylistic techniques to work on the newer technique?

  • How can I help my students see the importance of slowing down to write a key word outline?

  • What do we do when the key word outline does not reflect the main ideas of the source text?

  • Is it imperative to stay in the same sentence order when we make the key word outline?

  • Can we let students begin to pick out what is most interesting or important to use when they write?

  • Do you recommend doing the key word outline in class so that students can start their writing when they get home?

  • How do you feel about diagramming sentences?

As you can see, there are a lot of great questions being asked in this episode, perhaps some that you have even wondered about. To hear Andrew’s responses to them, be sure to listen to the podcast. By the way, the next episode when people “Ask Andrew Anything” will be Episode 300. Perhaps for this episode Andrew and Julie will do it as a video log (vlog) in lieu of audio. It would be a lot of fun to see them as well as hear them. We will find out then!
