Ask Andrew Anything: Podcast Episode 310

Feb 23, 2022 | 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 310 listeners asked the following questions:

  • How do I know if I’m expecting too much from my son in terms of his writing?
  • How do I inspire students to use dress-ups when they deem them unnecessary?
  • How do you best help older students (grade 11+) catch up?
  • What are some strategies for taking the Structure and Style writing principles and applying them to other content areas, such as science or history?
  • Should I start my seven-year-old with handwriting (cursive) or print (manuscript) writing?
  • How can a child who is able to listen and understand large chapter books such as The Chronicles of Narnia compose elaborate phrases? At this moment she is only writing three- to four-word prepositional phrases.
  • How do you keep the material fresh for students each year?

From writing to motivation to grammar and more, Andrew touches on lots of topics. Tune in to the episode to learn Andrew’s thoughts about these questions.
