The Great TWSS Adventure

What is The Great TWSS Adventure?

It is an opportunity to work through Teaching Writing: Structure and Style® during the same time frame when others all over the globe are doing the same thing. Through connection with Andrew Pudewa and IEW staff for an hour each Wednesday, you will find encouragement and inspiration to complete the course and will be better prepared to help your students become confident and competent communicators and thinkers. While participants in The Great TWSS Adventure need to have their own Seminar Workbook and have access to the second edition Teaching Writing: Structure and Style (2015) videos, there is no cost to sign up to join The Great TWSS Adventure.

Listen to our podcast "The Great TWSS Adventure" (Episode 426).

How can you participate?

  1.   Sign up for the weekly reminders.
  2.   Have access to the second edition Teaching Writing: Structure and Style (2015) video seminar and your own Seminar Workbook.
  3.   Schedule some time during each week of the event to view that week’s TWSS video. The reminder email will detail what to watch. You   might want to consider hosting a viewing party with a group of friends!
  4.   Join the live Q & A each Wednesday at 1:00 PM CT for Andrew Pudewa's introduction to the new unit (available on IEW’s YouTube channel).
  5.   Feel free to contact our team or email with any questions.
  6.   Enjoy yourself! We will award a $50.00 IEW® gift certificate to two lucky adventurers each week. You can enter the drawing by clicking on a link in the reminder email every week. Each Wednesday afternoon, we will draw two winners from the previous week’s entries.
