Quick Start Guide Suggestions to begin using Teaching Writing: Structure and Style 1. Watch the first Teacher 9 s Disc(s) You do not need to watch the entire teacher 9 s program before teaching your student. Simply watch the Disc 1 of Teaching Writing: Structure and Style, and you will know enough to get started.
If you are the type who likes to see the whole picture before starting, you will enjoy watching the entire seminar before teaching your student. The benefit of having the discs is that you can review any portion before teaching if desired. The cTips and Tricks d DVD has further teacher tips for writing and can be viewed any time after watching the original seminar.
The handouts to accompany the DVD need to be downloaded from the IEW website. The address is on the front of the disc. 2.
Watch the Student Workshop Disc In the back of the box of Teacher 9 s discs, you will find three bonus discs labeled Elementary, Intermediate, and Advanced Student Workshops. These discs provide the first instruction at various grade levels. They all start at the beginning and vary only in the reading level of the model and pace of instruction ... more. less.
.<br><br> (Note: if you purchased a Student Writing Intensive, begin by reading the teacher instructions in the packet of handouts.) You may watch the Student Workshop with your students (no previewing necessary!), or use them as model lessons for yourself. The handouts for these discs are located in the back of your teacher 9 s notebook. 3.<br><br> Teach! Continue to watch your Teacher 9 s discs and teach incrementally through the units. If you liked using the Student Workshop for instruction, you can purchase more of the same with a Student Writing Intensive or you may wish to consider our Theme-Based writing lessons which provide ready-made lesson plans for your use.<br><br> Support Excellence in Writing offers online support forums for teachers and homeschooling parents, so check out the Support section of the Excellence in Writing website at www.excellenceinwriting.com You can find the Disc time signatures for your TWSS on the back of this sheet.
