In my “previous life” (before children) I was an architect. Having learned to design for both form and function, I knew that spaces had to look appealing and inviting, but they also had to be efficient and work well. It has been forty years since I left my T-square and drafting table to work in flesh and blood. While homeschooling my seven children (now all post-college), I was delighted to discover Andrew Pudewa’s materials in 2002. Using the TWSS system made teaching writing a joy. The materials are appealing. The results are powerful. The writing becomes elegant. I highly recommend using IEW to everyone.
