UPDATE – Orientation for IEW courses will take place TBD. A link will be provided via email and in the Important Information section of this course. The session will be recorded and placed in the Important Information section if you are unable to make the live session, but you MUST watch before attending your first class session.
This live, interactive IEW class will engage your student each week. In addition, graded assignments as well as optional Minecraft activities are also provided. This class is a full writing credit. Attending live class is essential for success, however, sessions will be recorded. Classes are taught using methodology by The Institute for Excellence in Writing® by teachers certified to teach with this method.
IEW’s Structure and Style® writing method will give your student’s a toolbox so that they have confidence-building tools, which lays the groundwork for a lifetime of excellent writing. My focus is to assist your student to gain skills to confidently communicate by learning to write well, think clearly, and express themselves eloquently and persuasively.
Parents are required to actively participate in the homework process. During class, structure will be introduced, explained, and modeled. Tools will be provided to add style. Students will also gain knowledge of organizing as they assemble their binder on a weekly basis. Assignments will need to be typed using Google docs by the student or with parental assistance.
Students who have completed Year 1 Level B or a theme-based book are ready for an exciting journey using engaging and new sources. We will review and refine the nine previously learned IEW units, then press into writing responses to literature. Included in the curriculum are vocabulary words and literature suggestions.
This class is recommended for students in 7th – 9th grade.
This course will be a two semester class using the following required materials:
- IEW Structure & Style Level B Year 2 The student will only need the Student Packet and Binder for the writing portion of the class.
This class will begin on Tuesday, August 29th from 10:00 am to 11:15 am CST and will end Tuesday, April 31st.
