What Are We Really Doing Here?

The Institute for Excellence in Writing started after Andrew Pudewa learned the Structure and Style® composition method from Dr. James B. Webster almost 20 years ago. As Andrew began teaching this method to parents and teachers across the United States, it became evident that what he was teaching was much more than just a writing curriculum. We are, he believes, now part of something much, much greater than "improving basic skills" or "preparing our children for college." We are engaged in the great work of empowering a wave of young people who will have the means and the motivation to boldly enter the war of ideas, knowing how to think and powerfully employ the spoken and written word.

Recorded at the 2008 Writing Educator's Symposium
