Experience the adventures of the ancient world!
This theme-based writing curriculum exposes students to the ancient world through cultural literature and the study of famous places and events while they learn using IEW’s Structure and Style method. These lessons will guide students grades 4-7 through a full year of instruction covering all nine IEW units. Vocabulary cards, literature suggestions, and access to helpful PDF downloads are also included.
Notice that we will be using the sixth edition student book. https://iew.com/shop/products/coming-soon-ancient-history-based-writing-lessons-student-book-only & https://iew.com/shop/products/student-resource-package-packet-and-binder
A live interactive SKrafty writing class with IEW 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 goal 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. Scribing for your child is appropriate but do not change their words!! During class, structure will be introduced, explained, and modeled. Tools will be provided to add style. Students may begin class needing parental assistance, but the goal is for them to be mostly independent by the end of the year. Assignments will need to be typed using Google docs by the student or with parental assistance.
Students will earn badges as they complete quizzes and a Diamond Armor badge when they complete the whole class.
This course is a 2 semester class using the required textbook Ancient History Writing (Student Book) – 6th Edition and https://iew.com/shop/products/student-resource-package-packet-and-binder
