Please join us for a fun-filled writing class with live classes, grading, and some Minecraft. Your student will have a live class each week, assignments, and optional Minecraft activities. Students will work through IEW Units 1–7 as they learn to take notes, retell narrative stories, summarize references, write from pictures, and compose their own fables, myths, and fairy tales. This course includes vocabulary and literature suggestions. Writing assignments will be submitted via Google Docs. Live attendance is encouraged however the class will be recorded to watch later if needed. Working microphone and web cam required. This class is taught using methodology from The Institute for Excellence in Writing by a teacher certified to teach this method. Fables, Myths, and Fairy Tales is a level A course. We recommend this class for 4th-6th graders. We recommend that young students have the maturity to handle sitting through an online class. Some students may require parental involvement during live class. All students will need parental assistance to complete this course effectively. Each class can be used for a full writing credit. Combine this with a Fix-it course for a complete language arts credit.
Students will earn badges as they complete quizzes and a Diamond Armor badge when they complete the whole class.
This course will be a 2 semester class using the required textbooks Fables, Myths, and Fairy tales (Student Book). Students are required to have the latest version of the student book (2019) which will be available this summer. The course also requires the Student Resource Packet .
This class will begin on Tuesday, September 10th from 12:30 pm – 1:45 pm CST and will end Tuesday, April 28th.
