Life Science-Based Writing Lessons
Is Your Solution to Writing!
February 25, 2014
Dear Fellow Writing Teacher, Homeschool Mom or Parent,
Spend your time with your
kids...instead of planning writing lessons. How?
Danielle Olander & Peter Swett
developed 30 writing lessons for moms and teachers who want to move through all nine IEW units
while studying or teaching life science. Danielle & Peter are a
father-daughter team where each has their own specialty. Danielle in
writing & Peter in science. As a team they discovered that "writing
about something helps you to learn it."
They also have 3 goals in writing this
1. To help you use the IEW materials to teach communication to your
2. To encourage students who are "science brains" in their writing
Scientists have to write, too! Perhaps it will be easier to learn to
write if students are writing about a topic of interest and expertise.
For those who are not science brains, it will help them learn the
material if they write about it.
***This was one of the strategies I used to teach my son how to write.
He loves Science, so I used his "passion" to teach him some skills. We
often used IEW techniques in his lab reports.
3. To share a love of the wonder of God's creation.
We do not make any attempt to hide that we believe in a Creator God
who fashioned a marvelous world out of nothing. We sought interesting
stories and evidence of design and purpose in nature.
All the lessons assume the teacher and/or student has access to the
Teaching Writing: Structure and Style instructional seminar, live or
on DVD or video. In addition, some lessons will introduce a different
method of organizing a paragraph and will provide modeling and
practice in writing that style of paragraph. Finally, each lesson will
introduce, reinforce or practice the use of stylistic techniques that
will enhance the writing style of the student.
One of the coolest things about Danielle & Peter's writing lessons is
it goes they cover a wide variety of life science topics, such as
botany, bacteria and zoology.
Most lessons follow this format:
- Objective for the Lesson
- Modeling an IEW technique
- Explanation of the Paragraph Type
- Stylistic Techniques being taught in
- Assignment for this lesson
- Source Texts to be used for the
As you can see it is very
straight-forward and very easy-to-use! I wish they had these lessons
when I was teaching my children life science.

For Newbies & experienced
After completing only Units I
and II we already see such value in our IEW lessons!
While watching the TWSS and then
the SWI presentations, my daughter commented, "Hey, I think
this will help me in my other subjects."
Today while working on her
science, trying to explain to her how to do her Apologia Lab
Notes, she commented - "Why don't I just write a Key Word
Outline from this Sample Lab Note from Apologia and then
write my own Summary afterwards." I was absolutely thrilled.
She did so, including coming up with some very interesting
symbols, dressing up her Summary with new synonyms, etc.
I praise God for these
lessons, the instructor, and all the others who work at IEW
(especially Jill who was such a big help getting us
started). Never in all of our 8 years of homeschooling has
writing become so much fun!
