Andrew Pudewa tells it like it is, and I appreciate that.
The downside: Well, you can only make writing so exciting.
This is meant to be an “intensive” seminar meaning that you would watch and do the exercises over a short period of time. The upside: If you have limited time and need to get your child up to par with writing, or improve writing for the SAT or ACT or similar, then this is amazing. You can use the format here and stop and work on the skills more before learning the next part.
I’ve used IEW materials with Jayme many years ago, but have never gone through their high school material.
Now that Jayme freshman year is almost over, and words like “SAT” and “Personal Essay for College” are entering our vocabulary, I realized that a review of essays was definitely in order. When we opened up the box, we found 5 DVDs, a packet of student handouts, and an expandable folder that not only has a space to keep the notes, but also offers plenty of models, checklists, and strategies.
(I’m still in denial about how close that stage actually is…) I definitely recommend High School Essay Intensive from Institute for Excellence in Writing if you’ve got a high schooler.
We’ll be finishing this up, and reviewing it again in the next couple of years.
I kept finding ways to tie the instruction into blog posts, because that’s what I write.
They really are a variation of the essay, and since Jayme is also blogging, it was a great way to connect personally to the instruction. It’s over 6 hours long, and while we haven’t quite made it all the way through, every part we’ve watched has been high quality.
First let me say that IEW is an amazing writing program.
That’s how most people feel about writing an essay. For years we’ve been using Institute for Excellence in Writing with our kids, so I was so excited to be given the opportunity to try out the High School Essay Intensive program.
