If you’re a homeschooler, you probably recognize IEW as the curriculum offered by the Institute for Excellence in Writing.
A few years ago my husband and I attended a talk at the Florida Parent Educators convention. It was presented by Andrew Pudewa, the creator of the IEW writing curriculum. At the time our youngest two children were very young and although we thoroughly enjoyed the presentation, we balked at the price of the curriculum.
Fast forward 4 years, and we have decided to make the investment. We think. I’ve talked to a lot of other moms and the consensus is that it could be worth the money. It depends on the child.
Because I am already tutoring one homeschooled young woman in writing with pretty good results, not to mention helping out our young adult daughters whose writing education suffered in the public system more than I even realized, it’s been suggested that we forgo the $250 expense. I still think I need the extra help with out 4th and 2nd grade homeschoolers.
The point of this post is to solicit reviews from any of my readers who are familiar with it or have used it.
Have you any experience with IEW, and if so, what do you think of it?
Book review coming on Friday. Els’ honor.
