Why We Do What We Do

Sep 07, 2018 | Posted by the IEW Blog Team


We are not merely a curriculum company. At IEW we fervently desire to go beyond simply designing a course of study in a subject such as English. At our heart we want to empower educators, whether they be professional teachers, hybrid school instructors, or homeschool parents. For we understand that if teachers are well-equipped to instruct their students, the students will be better able to learn.

Out of this desire to equip educators, we have created processes and resources to aid them in their efforts to instill not only composition skills but communicating and thinking skills into their students. The core of our program is the Teaching Writing: Structure and Style seminar and practicum notebook, a program created to instruct teachers and teaching parents. Along with this strong foundation, we also provide a myriad of other materials such as curriculum, articles, audio, live education, and more.

By learning the Structure and Style™ approach, teachers are able to teach their students in a manner that works for their classes and students. Teaching approaches may include writing across the curriculum, using materials specifically designed for classroom use, facilitating learning with a video-based, or selecting a theme-based program. Having a wide range of options frees teachers up to best fit their students’ needs by using their teaching styles.

But Structure and Style is just one component of instilling excellent communication and thinking skills in students. Along with writing we also provide materials that will help a student learn to speak eloquently, spell accurately, comprehend deeply, think independently, and hand-write beautifully. In doing so, we support teachers’ efforts to instill in their students a lifetime of success in writing.

Putting all of the above succinctly, we arrive at this:

The Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW®) equips teachers and teaching parents with methods and materials which will aid them in training their students to become confident and competent communicators and thinkers. Using the Structure and Style™ writing method, IEW will give you the ability to fill young minds with language-building skills, laying the groundwork for a lifetime of excellent writing.

It’s what we do. It’s what we believe in. It’s what we strive to achieve every day. How can we help you today?
