***PLEASE READ all the way through.*** This class involves instructional recordings as well as live meetings. In this class, your learner will be working through Fables, Myths, and Fairy Tales from the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW). This course will take the students through units one and four of the program. Your learner will learn how to make an outline and retell a story or information by determining key words from a source text. Learners will then move into paragraph writing...
Learners will improve their writing skills and learn how to organize their thoughts by creating outlines and compositions that follow the structure and style of IEW. They will dress up their writing by systematically adjusting parts of speech such as adverbs, strong verbs, and quality adjectives. Learners 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 project, 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.

The learner will be given detailed feedback weekly based on the rubric at the end of each lesson in the Student Book. Vocabulary quizzes will also be available. Collection of feedback and grades will be done at the discretion of the adult at home. *** If a number grade is not what you are looking for in this course, please message me directly so we can make other arrangements. The learner will also receive feedback on retellings and grammar challenges.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
For grading purposes in Google Docs and for participation in the asynchronous Google Slides activities, each learner will need a GMail account (this can be your account or an account you set up separately for this class). External sources like Nearpod will also be used for asynchronous activities in this class. You do not need an account for this resource, but your learner will be prompted to type his/her name to participate. YouTube will be used for the recordings which will be shared in the Outschool classroom. Your learner will not be directed to the site. All activities are only available to the learners in this class.
