February 8, 2014
Dear Fellow Writing Teacher, Homeschool Mom or Parent,

Lori Verstegan has done it again. She provides 29 writing lessons for moms & teachers who are studying or teaching medieval history. One of the coolest things about Lori's writing lessons is it goes chronologically through the program. In other words, it begins with Augustine & Mohammed, runs thorugh Charlemagne, Knights, King Arthur and ends with the Magna Charta.

Most lessons begin with activities to teach a stylistic technique or writing structure. These vary from strong verbs to show emotions to topic sentences/clinchers to similes. An overview of the lesson is provided, as well as a step-by-step (EASY TO FOLLOW) lesson plan.

Medieval History Writing Lessons are just another excellent supplement to Teaching Writing: Structure & Style. Lori provides 1-4 lessons for each of TWSS (IEW's Teaching Writing) units thus covering stories, reports, formal essays, critiques and creative writing. Checklists are provided for both the teacher & student.

So you're wondering what ages can use Medieval History-Based Writing Lessons?

Glad you asked because Lori has thought of everything. In her easy-to-follow lessons, she separates her instructions for elementary (4th-6th grade) from junior high. To help teach different ages of students, different checklists & assignments are given.  This includes both the Student Book as well as the Teacher's Manual.

2. Stylistic Technique Charts & Helps - You should refer to these charts when your kids need to add quality adjectives, strong verbs or adverbs. They do not have to think of these words on their own because long lists are given for them to choose from.

3. Vocabulary - Cards with 64 vocabulary words/pictures are included so your kids can start using these words in their own writings. What better way to increase your vocabulary than to actually use your new vocabulary words. Also included are some vocab quizzes & final test.

My 13 year old daughter, who has worked through the Student Writing Intensive, Medieval Lessons, and whatever other writing assignments I've come up with, was talking to a friend. The friend had desired to enter a Hannah Montana essay contest—the deadline was quickly approaching. The friend lamented as would not be able to compose an essay in so short a period saying, “they are so difficult to write!” My daughter became excited and told her friend that "No, this is going to be easy! The writing curriculum my mom has been using is really going to come in handy!" Then she spent 30 minutes explaining HOW it works and giving pointers to her friend.

Today she was called to kid-sit for a neighbor. The gal commented she had to go work on a letter for a custody hearing. Not exactly a topic to discuss with a 13 year old. Nonetheless, Allison said, "Just add lots of quality adjectives, strong verbs and -ly words; it'll sound great!" The neighbor became excited and asked Allison if she could call for more pointers!

I am so blessed and thankful to see some fruit in my labor. Thank you IEW for an effective, practical product.
