Writing Curriculum

TRISMS provides assignments that guide students through the IEW curriculum by tying instruction from the program to literature assignments in TRISMS.  The TRISMS assignments can be completed without IEW, but we have found the program to be very helpful for our students.
This a one-time purchase for your middle and high school years.
Our volumes reference the *IEW TWSS2-D  By Andrew Pudewa
12 DVD set with Seminar and Practicum Workbook
*Since our most recent printings, IEW has provided an updated version of their curriculum.  It should not be hard to follow what is being taught in the new version, but please note that page numbers and titles on DVDs may be different in the newest version. This newest version is:
