    Episode 323: Preventing Evaporation — Strategies for Summer Writing

    Summer is a great time for relaxing, spending time outdoors, and taking a break from the long school year. It can also be a time when students forgot the skills they've learned. This week, Andrew and Julie suggest ways to keep your students writing throughout the summer season. From writing postcards to crafting commentary on recipes, the duo encourages some fun application of writing skills.

    Episode 321: Advanced Style, Part 1

    This week's podcast moves beyond sentence openers and dress-ups. Andrew and Julie discuss the advanced style techniques. Providing examples, Andrew goes through quite a few of them. To name some, he discusses dual -ly adverbs, alliteration, parallelism, metaphor, and more! Learn how the goal with these techniques is not to make better writing right now but to help form better writers.

My favorite homeschooling podcast!

I love setting aside time for the IEW podcast. It is always so inspirational. I’ve been homeschooling my children since 2000, and I still enjoy all of the educational tips and encouragement found here. It’s not just about IEW’s curriculum products; there is so much about learning, teaching, reading, writing, speaking, and education that is so beneficial to teachers and parents alike.
