Recorded live with Mr. Andrew Pudewa, this four-DVD writing course for students lays a solid foundation of writing skills, based on our Teaching Writing: Structure & Style syllabus. Over the course of 15–30 weeks, students will learn how to effectively use a wide range of structural models and stylistic techniques in their compositions, as they write on a variety of enjoyable fiction and non-fiction topics. Included with the student handouts are complete teacher's notes, source texts, assignments, and checklists.
• Structure & Style Overview DVD for parents and teachers
• Four instructional DVDs for the student
• Three-ring binder with dividers
• Student packet containing scope & sequence, teacher’s notes, and student handouts for one student (about 100 pages in all)

Home use: You may copy this Student Book for use by multiple children within your immediate family.
Small group or co-op classes: Each teacher and participating student or family is required to purchase a Student Book (hard copy or e-book).
Classroom teachers: A Student Book (hard copy or e-book) must be purchased for each teacher and participating student.
Library use: Printed materials and DVDs may be checked out of a lending library provided patrons agree not to make copies.
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. 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.
