This class is a logical next class for students who took IEW US History-Based Writing Lessons last year. If you have a middle school student who has never taken IEW before, this can also be a great place for students to start formal writing instruction if their parents are committed to helping them at home. I will help you learn how to do this, parents! My fifty minutes of weekly instruction will get your students started, but your input is vital. Writing, like any skill, requires practice and consistent instruction. Slow and steady wins the race!
Supplies: 1” 3-ring binder, with 4 separate tabs for Current Work, Completed Work, Resources, and Paper
I prefer students use pens in class because they write more easily and require less pressure....and they rarely break.
Curriculum used will be IEW’s Modern World History-Based Writing Lessons, Second edition, March 2020. I will purchase this for you with your materials fee.
Course description: Students will develop their skill with the Structure and Style Writing Method while learning about interesting, important people and events in world history. 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. 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.
