When we go to write the first paragraph, sometimes including a character that only shows up later in the story is challenging. Is it okay to only mention that character in the <em>Conflict and Problem</em> or <em>Climax and Resolution</em> sections, or is it good to try to mention all the characters in the first paragraph?”</p> <p>3:25 - Misty asks, “Thanks for the great info! I was listening to the dyslexia podcast. When you talk about a dyslexic child listening to audiobooks, should they be trying to follow along with the print, or just simply listening to the story?”</p> <p>6:06 - Christine asks, “Should we have commas after an -ly adverb opener?”</p> <p>8:27 - Amy asks, “My question for you is regarding teaching my kids how to play the piano. I have listened to your podcasts talking about the Suzuki method and it intrigues me. My oldest is taking piano lessons; however, his teacher is retiring soon. She teaches using the traditional method, which is how I was taught piano. The nearest Suzuki teacher is an hour drive away. I’m wondering what your opinion is on a parent attempting to teach the Suzuki method at home. Of course I would read Suzuki’s books to gain better insight, but I wouldn’t have any formal training in the method. Can you help?”</p> <p>11:52 - Wendy asks, “I am teaching a group of 16 students through the Continuation Course Level B. They are writing papers about famous people from history. The sources that Mr. Pudewa has required them to write are from a book, an encyclopedia/periodical, and whatever other material they might choose such as Internet or video. One of the questions I received was "Can I choose a Kindle book?" This started me questioning what I should allow. Since the filming of the series, much technology has come into play.”</p> <p>16:37 - Customers frequently ask our Customer Service team, “Prior to Unit 6, how does a student put a word-for-word quotation on the key word outline?”</p> <p>17:57 - Customers frequently ask our Customer Service team, “When a student with no previous IEW experience begins with <em>High School Essay Intensive</em> and then wants more help with writing, what program would be best to move on to next?”</p> <p>20:10 - Customers frequently ask our Customer Service team, “What is the purpose of copywork and how do our families and teachers choose the appropriate pieces for students to copy?”</p> <p> </p> <p>If you have any questions about IEW or our products, do not hesitate to contact our Customer Service Team at 800.856.5815 or <a href="mailto:Info@IEW.com" rel="nofollow">info@IEW.com</a></p>

<p>In part two of this series, Andrew and Julie discuss the second form of relevancy: Inspired Relevancy.

I so commonly hear, ‘Mom, what is six times seven?’ My kids, ages eleven and fourteen, have a difficult time memorizing math facts. They are continuing to improve, but it is quite a process. They have a times table chart to refer to during math and drill math facts. I want them to continue learning new concepts, so often I give them the answer to not muddy the water. I am curious to hear your take on this situation.</p> <p>7:11 - Jennifer asks, “Teaching class today regarding who/which clauses, I had a parent ask about ‘whose’ and where that fits in the IEW curriculum. For instance: ‘The bicycle whose chain is broken is mine.’”</p> <p>8:40 - Emily asks, “I have been listening to the podcast and getting prepared all summer.  I am telling everyone IEW is my ‘curriculum crush’ of the year! Andrew mentions using this with his dyslexic son. As I recall, he got 20 minutes to copy 100 words and got 1 point per word, but there were also various ways to lose points. Can you explain that?”</p> <p>16:13 - Anonymous asks,  “I have a sixth grader and was wanting to get Linguistic Development through Poetry Memorization, but wasn’t sure whether we should start with Level 1. Will it be as effective as a first grader starting? Is it worth it?”</p> <p>19:58 - Anonymous asks, “I have a seven-year-old who writes his numbers backwards. He used to write his letters backwards, but that has since been corrected with making them out of clay per the Gift of Dyslexia method. He has made the numbers in clay models too, but the method didn't take with those. Any suggestions for how to help writing with numbers?”</p> <p>24:27 - Amber asks, “I love the podcast. I am a homeschool mom and have a six-year-old gifted child. She is on the last few lessons of the first Fix It!. We have modified it by having her write the sentence the next day for copywork versus writing the whole paragraph in one day. She completed the PAL writing program at the age of five and writes amazingly well on her own. Should I move her into the second Fix It! right away or switch to traditional copywork?”</p> <p>27:13 - Janet asks, “What does Andrew say about mind-mapping?”</p> <p> </p> <p>If you have any questions about IEW or our products, do not hesitate to contact our Customer Service Team at 800.856.5815 or <a href="mailto:Info@IEW.com" rel="nofollow">info@IEW.com</a></p>

Normally I'm not nervous about how my kids are doing in the grand scheme of things. Dealing with high school, however, has been a totally different story.

Do you have any advice for this level of Latin?"</p> <p>4:55 - Christine asks, "Are there a limited number of words that work as invisible openers?

It doesn't sound right to me to say, "Tired, the man sank down into a sofa." Or, "Sleepy the man..."</p> <p>8:42 - Holly says, "It would be great to get a little more help or advice on the taking notes from lectures and then writing paragraphs.

I would like something that she could work on independently. Do you have recommendations? Are there assessments built into the program?"</p> <p>13:06 - Melissa asks, "I recently listened to episode 66 of the podcast. My son has ADD and learning disabilities such as significant delays in spelling and mild delays in reading and math. He also has delays in working memory and processing speed. He's currently in the 5th grade in a public school. I am unfortunately unable to homeschool him, but we are working with him after school and in the summers as much as possible. I wanted to see what would be recommended for him? He's currently in 5th grade so I'm unsure whether level A or level B would be best for him."</p> <p>16:13 - Mary asks, "My fourteen-year-old has some issues: lack of proper punctuation in sentences, run-ons, and tense agreements, to name a few. I have addressed these in editing, but I feel like he's missing something pretty important. Should I continue to coach him through editing? He is grasping all the dress-ups quite well. We are in Unit 4."</p> <p>23:52 - Paula asks,"Hi there. I'm in a bit of a pickle. I am tutoring an IEW writing class at a tutoring center and the grades range from 3-8. The director insists that we use <em>Medieval History-Based Writing Lessons</em>. It's actually been going really well, but now we have started unit 6 and the younger students are confused.

He's a voracious reader with great vocabulary and great grades to date, but he has Aspergers and ADHD. We are familiar with your work and are very interested in your online classes as a good way to meet his needs and receive great instruction.

I see that<em> Following Narnia </em>Volume 1 is intended for grades 6–8. However, I believe someone mentioned on the IEW forum that Volume 1 can be adapted to make it appropriate for the High School level. Could you please provide some feedback?"</p> </li> <li> <p>18:17 - Rebecca asks, "I'm trying to find a writing program for my daughter to use before she goes to college this fall. She has had some writing, but needs to have basic improvement and practice.

She writes very well and has not struggled in any area of the programs she has completed. She completed the<em> Student Writing Intensive</em> Level B and will be finishing the <em>Continuation Course</em> Level B in a couple of weeks. She would really like to complete a course geared more toward writing her own books this year. We are wondering if <em>The Elegant Essay</em> or <em>Speech Boot Camp</em> could be swapped out for<em> A Guide to Writing Your Novel</em>?"</p> </li> </ul><p>Remember to send your questions to <a href="mailto:Podcast@IEW.com" rel="nofollow">Podcast@IEW.com</a>, and perhaps yours will be answered the next time we Ask Andrew Anything (AAA).</p> <p>If you have any questions about IEW or our products, do not hesitate to contact our Customer Service Team at 800.856.5815 or <a href="mailto:Info@IEW.com" rel="nofollow">Info@IEW.com</a></p>

Some homeschool parents are even busier with more kids, additional volunteer work, and co-ops.  Sometimes I feel I'm tired of "teaching," or better said, tired of the "traditional teacher delivery/image." Do you have any suggestions to avoid teacher's burnout? Or possible alternatives (activities, ideas) to the traditional delivery method?"</li> <li>15:08-Julie asks "My question is this, while my son reads at a college level, he does occasionally come across words that he can't decode and seems to have lost the ability to decode unfamiliar words. I'm unsure if I should go back and focus on decoding (that seems labor intensive considering his reading level is so high and frankly I wouldn't know what method to use at his age), or should I focus on vocabulary building."</li> <li>20:15-Kim asks "I am watching Unit 9 in TWSS. Andrew is really encouraging students to increase their vocabulary. Does he recommend workbooks like Wordly Wise, or are the word lists he provides enough?

Episode 53b: Nurturing Competent Communicators, Part 2
<p>Many teachers and parents think that good readers will naturally become good writers. Others think that writing talent is just that—a natural ability—some have it, others don’t. Both are myths. History and modern research show very clearly how good writers develop and demonstrate the two most critical things needed for a high level of aptitude in writing.

<p>In the final discussion of this three-part series on pen and paper, Andrew and Julie explore the effects of technology in a classroom, the results of students using computers, and the importance of pens instead of pencils. Does technology actually have a negative effect on student’s test scores? Should a student adapt to using a pen over a pencil? Why should a student learn cursive first rather than printed letters?</p> <h3>GO TO <a href="https://goo.gl/w2Jah2" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">PART 1</a> | <a href="https://goo.gl/GGYnDv" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">PART 2</a></h3> <h3>Referenced Materials:</h3> <ul><li><a href="https://goo.gl/Ip0EnA" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">"An Analysis of the Ball Point Pen Versus the Pencil as a Beginning Handwriting Instrument"</a> by Shirley Tawney</li> <li><em><a href="http://amzn.to/1UB7VwU" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">The Flickering Mind: Saving Education from the False Promise of Technology</a> </em>by Todd Oppenheimer</li> <li><a href="https://goo.gl/OIEHdv" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">"Children With Home Computers Likely to Have Lower Test Scores"</a> by Duke University</li> <li><a href="http://goo.gl/39Keo2" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">"Computers 'do not improve' pupil results, says OECD"</a> by Sean Coughlan</li> <li><a href="http://goo.gl/ZR0bNX" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><em>Teaching Writing: Structure and Style, Second Edition</em></a></li> </ul><p><em>Remember to send your questions to <a href="mailto:Podcast@IEW.com" rel="nofollow">Podcast@IEW.com</a>, and perhaps yours will be answered the next time we Ask Andrew Anything (AAA).</em></p>

Episode 46: Pen and Paper: What the Research Says, Part 2
<p>In the past couple of decades, we have seen a technological revolution both in the way people read books, with the introduction of e-readers such as iPads and Kindles, and in the way students take notes, with laptops now ubiquitous in college and high school classrooms. Have you ever wondered what the effects of reading on a screen versus on paper might be? Or if there is any difference between typing notes in class versus taking notes by hand? In this episode, Andrew shares fascinating research that might just encourage you to pull a real book off the shelf and take some notes with pen in hand.</p> <h3>GO TO <a href="https://goo.gl/w2Jah2" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">PART 1</a> | <a href="https://goo.gl/5Ai7ML" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">PART 3</a></h3> <h3>Referenced Materials:</h3> <ul><li><a href="https://goo.gl/kMS4Di" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">"Teaching With Interactive Picture E-Books in Grades K–6"</a> by Heather Ruetschlin Schugar, Carol A.

Episode 45: Pen and Paper: What the Research Says, Part 1
<p>In the past couple of decades, we have seen a technological revolution both in the way people read books, with the introduction of e-readers such as iPads and Kindles, and in the way students take notes, with laptops now ubiquitous in college and high school classrooms. Have you ever wondered what the effects of reading on a screen versus on paper might be? Or if there is any difference between typing notes in class versus taking notes by hand? In this episode, Andrew shares fascinating research that might just encourage you to pull a real book off the shelf and take some notes with pen in hand.</p> <h3>GO TO <a href="https://goo.gl/GGYnDv" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">PART 2</a> | <a href="https://goo.gl/5Ai7ML" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">PART 3</a></h3> <h3>Referenced Materials:</h3> <ul><li><em><a href="http://goo.gl/ODpIWL" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">I Spy</a> </em>by Jean Marzollo</li> <li><a href="http://goo.gl/C0CIgU" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">"Teaching with Interactive Picture E-Books in Grades K–6"</a> by Heather Ruetschlin Schugar, Carol A.
