Jul 06, 2022 | Posted by the IEW Blog Team

Andrew Pudewa is the founder and director of the Institute for Excellence in Writing and has been teaching writing for over thirty years. What some people might not know, however, is that Andrew’s career actually began as a violin instructor. So how did Andrew go from teaching with a bow to teaching with a pen?

That’s what Podcast Episode 329 is all about! In the episode Andrew and Julie rewind to 1990 to discuss IEW’s founding. It was then that Andrew was working for a small private school in Montana. Thanks to his convincing co-worker, Andrew along with the rest of the school faculty traveled to Alberta, Canada, for a ten-day teacher-training program. There Andrew learned the Blended Structure and Style in Composition method from Dr. Webster. The rest is history!

By tuning in you’ll learn about Andrew’s success implementing the Structure and Style method. More importantly, you’ll glean insight on IEW’s mission of equipping teachers and teaching parents with methods and materials, which will aid them in training their students to become confident and competent communicators and thinkers.
