I have now graduated my two oldest children. As I have said before, I only have one regret in homeschooling. I wish I had watched the Teaching Writing: Structure and Style seminar sooner. I learned so much from Andrew Pudewa about writing and about teaching in general. In fact, I plan to listen to the entire seminar again this summer!
What is Teaching Writing: Structure and Style?
Teaching Writing: Structure and Style is a 14-hour long seminar taught by master teacher Andrew Pudewa. It’s for teachers, not for kids. So, homeschool mom, it’s for you!
He explains his writing philosophy and how to implement it for all your kids, elementary through high school. The system can be used with only one child at home, with a group at a homeschool co-op, and even in a school classroom.
My kids have done IEW here at home and at a couple of co-ops that we have been a part of.
Teaching Writing: Structure and Style seminar has been so helpful because teaching writing does not come naturally for me.
