Pathway to Excellence in Thinking, Speaking, and Writing

GETTING STARTED

LEGEND TWSS: Teaching Writing: Structure & Style (p. 10) SID: Student Writing Intensive DVD course (Levels A, B, C) (p. 11) TWSID: Teaching Writing/Student Intensive Combo (Levels A, B, C) (p. 10) SICC: Student Writing Intensive Continuation Course (Levels A, B, C) (p. 13)

Enter Wherever You Are! Unlike other programs which provide specific curricula for each individual grade, the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) offers teacher training along with ready-made lessons which can be used over a range of grade levels. This can make choosing a course a challenge, especially when you begin our program with an older student. Although there is no single path to follow using our materials, this chart can give you a place to start and simplify your choices for the years to come. To support your student’s progress on the pathway, check out our materials for grammar (pp. 14–15), practicing spelling (pp. 22–23), memorizing poetry & discussing literature (pp. 24–25), and studying & developing leadership skills (pp. 26–27).
