Student Writing Intensive Level A
Each level (A, B, or C) presumes no previous experience; levels differ mainly in the type of source texts used, speed of presentation, and sophistication of vocabulary.
Structure and Style® Overview DVD for parents and teachers
Four instructional DVDs for the student
Three-ring binder with dividers
Student packet containing scope and sequence, teacher's notes, and student handouts for one student (about 100 pages in all)
Recorded live, this entertaining and informative DVD writing course for students by Andrew Pudewa presents structural models and stylistic techniques based on IEW's Teaching Writing: Structure and Style Seminar. Each group (A, B or C) presumes no previous experience; levels differ mainly in the type of source texts used, speed of presentation, and sophistication of vocabulary. Choose the level based on your child's age and maturity rather than writing ability.
For the self-motivated student and an aid for parents, the SWI and Continuation Courses are the ideal vehicle to learn the Excellence in Writing Program.
The DVDs teach directly to the students at their grade level.
The accompanying Workbooks act as a guide through the DVDs, offering addtional practice exercises not included on the DVDs.
Level A suitable for Grades 3-5
Level B suitable for Grades 6-8
Level C suitable for Grades 9-12
Choose the level based on your child's age and maturity rather than writing ability, and if you wish to use the SWI with children of mixed ages, you can generally select Level B, “shooting for the middle.” Even students with little writing experience can immediately enjoy Andrew's humor and realize that the process is not so overwhelming as they learn techniques to create a more enjoyable finished composition. Their concept of writing as being “too hard” changes; they now have the tools for success!
With lesson plans and reinforcement exercises built right in, you'll know exactly which portion of the disc to watch for each lesson and which writing assignments to give your students.
