Guess what time it is, writing time! Please join us for a fun-filled writing class with live classes, grading, and some optional Minecraft starting in August and September 2023.  These courses are 2-semester classes, and the textbook will vary depending on the age/grade level.  Each class can be used for a full writing credit.  We will have a live class each week, assignments, and optional Minecraft activities to go along with it.  The live class will be recorded to watch later.  These classes will be taught using methodology by The Institute for Excellence in Writing by teachers certified to teach with this method.  You can read more about this method below:
