***PLEASE READ all the way through.*** This class involves recordings as well as live meetings and is an accelerated course. In this class, your learner will be working through Medieval History-Based Writing Lessons from the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW). This course takes the students through unit nine of the program. Your learner will learn how to make an outline by determining key words and then move into paragraph writing by summarizing multiple non-fiction texts and...
Learners will be taught to organize thoughts and ideas by creating key word outlines from fiction and non-fiction texts, and writing paragraphs from them. They will dress up their writing by systematically using more detailed parts of speech such as adverbs, strong verbs, and adjectives. Students will also practice varied sentence structure by using different sentence openers.
The learner should be prepared to spend 1-2 hours per week on homework. This will include watching the instructional recording, writing compositions, and studying vocabulary. The adult at home should be prepared to help when needed. Google Docs is mandatory for grading purposes. In addition to writing assignments, your learner will be encouraged to send a video of their retellings each week to the rest of the class. Your learner will not only be submitting this, but will also be able to see others and provide them feedback as well as receive it. Vocabulary quizzes and review activities will also be assigned on Quizlet, but are optional for participation.
