Description of Rockets, Radar, & Robotics by Institute for Excellence in Writing

Designed especially for those techies-in-training or newbie nerds, Rockets, Radar, & Robotics gives middle school students practice writing with the IEW models and stylistic techniques using technology as the subject material. These lessons are ideal for parents or teachers who have taught an IEW course previously and have students with a year of IEW experience under their belts.

Students will enjoy learning how the military is using iPods®, how radar was developed, and what makes rockets work. Thirty lessons contain checklists and source texts, along with teacher’s notes in a supplementary e-book. The author’s 12-year-old son originally conceived the concept for this fascinating book and collaborated throughout the project.

These lessons are designed to be used by an instructor who has been through the Teaching Writing: Structure & Style seminar, either live or on DVD.

Perfect for homeschoolers, homeschool co-ops, tutors, and hybrid schools, this theme-based writing curriculum supports parents and teachers in teaching writing to middle school students (grades 6–8).

This was Level B DVD's where Mr. Pudewa teaches a classroom of upper elementary and middle school children. I initially tried to use the curriculum where he teaches the teacher how to teach the student, and that was confusing to me. After purchasing the DVD's where our son watches Mr. Pudewa teach other children, everything flowed nicely. This is not an all-inclusive writing program, but an excellent place to start! We will be doing Level C later this year, but are supplementing writing skills with a Paragraph Writing and Book Discussion class through our local homeschool co-op. All writing activities nicely fit within the EIW framework.

This teaching method is very effective and came highly recommended. It is a unique approach. The DVD presents enjoyable lessons which make learning the material much easier for the student. My child looks forward to the lessons.

Highly recommend this curriculum. It is broken into manageable sections for the child as they learn and is measurable for them as they use it.
