Serving as both syllabus and workbook, this essential resource also contains charts, word lists, sample lesson plans, and more. The curriculum supports parents and teachers in teaching writing to elementary and early middle school students. This edition is the updated 2015 version. For more information on the differences between this and the old version, or to upgrade your old version, please click here:

This syllabus is designed to supplement the comprehensive seminar course, which we highly recommend you look at. We used to sell this as an all-in-one package with the DVDs, but given the shift towards online streaming and the lack of DVD ports in modern laptops, we now advise you to subscribe to the videos on IEW's website. Happily, this also works out cheaper. If you belong to a licensed UK Essentials community, please check with your Director, as additional discounts may be available.

In the Essentials program, tutors model a few writing techniques in class, allow students to practice the techniques, and then suggest a writing assignment to complete at home. This program takes the mystery out of teaching writing for parents, too.
