    Episode 212: The Four Deadly Errors of Teaching Writing, Part 2 — Withholding Help

    "Sink or swim!" While we all may use the phrase in a comical sense, it simply isn't true. Today, Andrew and Julie turn to the second of the four deadly errors: withholding help. Join the conversation as Andrew and Julie discuss how committing this error actually impedes the development of your student, and learn why students must prove their independence in a skill before a teacher leaves them on their own.

Customer Reviews

GratefulErica ,

Valuable wisdom!!!

Mr. Andrew Pudewa has so much wisdom to offer, not only in academics but also in teaching, even parenting! Julie and Andrew make a great team. She always knows how to bring the best insight out of him! Their secret ingredients are their passion and firm believes toward this method of teaching. Despite the fact that our two kids go to a five-days-a-week charter school, I find that all of Andrew’s wisdom, and the IEW writing and grammar curriculums, very applicable and useful to our family in educating our children, and myself! Thank you, Andrew, for being so generous in sharing many of your valuable conference talks for free on your websites. Listening to both this podcast and your on-line talks greatly helps me to better internalize the insights and to apply them in teaching my family!
