Become an IEW® Accredited Instructor this summer!

Jul 15, 2016 | Posted by Sabrina Cardinale

Summer is the perfect time to sharpen your writing and teaching skills with IEW. If you are planning to teach IEW classes in a co-op, tutor students, or teach the IEW method to students in a hybrid school setting or conventional classroom, consider becoming an IEW® Accredited Instructor. Completing the required practicum assignments and training will ensure that you thoroughly understand the IEW methodology and are able to confidently teach your students.

Even though I had been teaching IEW to my own children for ten years when I was offered the opportunity to teach writing classes in local co-ops, I knew that becoming an Accredited Instructor would be beneficial to me and my students. Re-watching IEW’s teacher seminar, Teaching Writing: Structure and Style, helped me refresh my understanding of all the units and gain helpful teaching tips. Working through the practicums, I reminded myself that it is one thing to teach and assign the homework, but it is quite another to actually put my own pen to paper and wrestle with the work. Writing and revising, finding just the right style, and making a paragraph pleasant to read can be challenging, and we become better teachers when we have worked through the process ourselves.

When parents sign up their children for IEW classes taught by an Accredited Instructor, they can have peace of mind knowing that the teacher was trained by Andrew Pudewa and has demonstrated competence and experience in the IEW methodology. And the ongoing training required for instructors to renew their accreditation also ensures that the Structure and Style™ method stays fresh and engaging.

Being accredited also comes with some nice perks, such as advertising with the IEW trademarks and discounts on IEW training events. Certified and Accomplished Instructors also receive a discount on products, and teachers can even get professional development CEUs through Liberty University by becoming Registered Instructors.
