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).
