These interdisciplinary lesson plans allow teachers to improve the strength and depth of student writing with supplemental history, science, literature, or faith content. The theme-based lessons are not intended for use as a curriculum replacement but rather are an excellent tool for broadening subject knowledge while teaching writing. With these lessons, it is assumed that instructors have been through or are currently viewing the Teaching Writing: Structure and Style (TWSS) video course. Without this resource, you will be lacking the insight to teach any of the IEW programs well.
Do you need help choosing which theme-based book to use? See chart below.
