The Institue of Excellence in Writing has been in business since 1995. From their magalog, they state they are “in the business of equipping teachers with methods and materials to aid them in training their students to become confident and competent communicators.” I have found that to be true in using SWI-A and spending copius amounts of time on their website, Excellence In Writing, and more recently soaking up information on their very active yahoo group, IEWFamilies. They are very generous with their knowledge, have many articles available on their website and Jill Pike, one of their staff members, is often available on the IEWFamilies loop to answer questions. If you sign up for their Magalog, you will get the download information for 2 FREE audio seminars titled “Freedomship Education Paradigm” and “Grammar and Editing Skills”. They offer an unconditional, no time limit 100% Full Refund guarantee on everything they sell if it is purchased from them. So, you really, really can’t lose by trying out some of their products! I’m sure the reason they can offer such a guarantee, is because after using their products, you won’t want to return it!!
P.S. If you are a mom of boys then you must watch “Teaching Boys and Other Children Who Would Rather Make Forts All Day” This answers all those puzzling questions about why boys do the things they do and how to work with them, instead of against them!! I sat through it thinking “Aha…!!! That’s why!!”
