Institute of Excellence in Writing, IEW is a Classical approach writing and english, with many years of success with unique teaching methods.

IEW's unique approach provides the structure that students need to develop confidence in the writing process, while gradually guiding them toward greater independence and creativity. Our core writing program is supported by materials for reading, grammar, spelling, literature, poetry, public speaking and more. IEWs Structure and Style® writing method will give you the ability to fill your student's toolbox with confidence-building tools, laying the groundwork for a lifetime of excellent writing

They will learn nine structural models (note taking, writing paragraphs, stories, simple reports, writing from pictures, research reports, creative writing, essays, and critiques) to help them organize any type of composition. Additionally, stylistic techniques (strong verbs, quality adjectives, sentence openers, and more) are taught incrementally to gently move students from the basics into more sophisticated writing.

IEWs mission is to equip teachers and teaching parents with methods and materials which will aid them in training their students to become confident and competent communicators and thinkers.
Using the four language arts—listening, speaking, reading, and writing—IEW methods have been proven to be effective for students of all ages and levels of ability, including those who are gifted, have special needs, or are English language learners.
