I think I have a plan now:)
Last week, I started my younger son doing some key word outlining, then orally retelling from the outline on the same day. His oral narrations were beautiful via this method! On the 2nd day, I had him write using the key word outline. Wow. He *can* write.
I've continued watching the TWSS even after having him beghin this last week. Today, I decided that I'm gonna spend the rest of this school year and some of the summer working on JUST the models (summarizing from notes and also from narratives and writing from pictures). I think if he spends a good bit of time practicing JUST the models before adding in any dress-ups, he'll do better.
Edited to add...THis past fall, I attempted the IEW method with him, but he became SO overwhelmed. Now I see that I was introducing the dress-ups to quickly for him. WAY to quickly.
