I prefer students use pens in class because they write more easily and require less pressure….and they rarely break.
Course description: This is a “first step” upper elementary class for students with little writing experience. They will need to be able to copy board notes in class. Neatness and spelling are not important, but speed is helpful! Homework each week can be hand-written or typed. Feel free to contact me if you’re wondering which class is the best fit for your student.
Parents are expected to help their students with their weekly homework and edit the student rough drafts. Consistent parental involvement and communication with me are extremely important for students to make progress in their writing skills in this class.
Class size is limited due to the time it takes to grade homework and my own tenuous mental health. ;) If you want your child to take IEW but they don’t make it into the class, please feel free to email me. You have many options for doing this at home and I’m happy to offer advice. IEW also offers online classes.
