IEW is a all encompassing writing program. They have so many options on writing. The main program for writing is their Teaching Writing Structure and Style. It comes in 3 levels A (3rd -5th) B (6th - 8th) and C (9th - 12th). It comes with DVD’s that teach each lesson for you (insert happy dance here!).
I am a huge IEW fan and I have used it with all my children in their middle school years. However, the IEW writing style is very formulated (meaning if you gave me a stack of 8th grade papers I could pick out the IEW writers). That being said once your kids have a solid grasp on the IEW writing style move them on to another writing curriculum and watch them soar. The foundation IEW gives is wonderful I just recommend trying a couple other writing curriculums in high school years!
IEW also has a great grammar program called Fix it Grammar. Your children actually learn the grammar by finding and correcting what is wrong with the grammar in each lesson. It’s a different approach to grammar but one that a couple of my children enjoyed.
