Theme-Based Writing Lessons

It isn’t always easy finding quality source texts for your student. Additionally, the busyness of life can interfere with being consistent with your aspiring writer. IEW’s theme-based writing lessons are the perfect solution to both of these problems! First, choose a theme that parallels your classroom focus or appeals to your individual student. Next, follow the daily lesson plans that teach your students to write using the Structure and Style® writing method in your chosen theme. Voila! With theme-based writing courses, connecting your writing assignments to your classroom content or the individual interests of your student is a snap!

All of our theme-based books are designed to be used by an instructor who has been through or is currently using the Teaching Writing: Structure and Style seminar.
