The ultimate goal is to give students writing skills they can apply to any subject or topic. The hope is to equip them to write for life, not just "school." When finished with this coarse students will have learned an organized way to synthesize information and communicate it from their point of view. These invaluable skills can be taken and applied to a myriad of subjects.
I am a certified IEW instructor and have been teaching this program for over 7 years. It is my mission to make writing interactive and fun for my students. In addition, I have walked all 3 of my own kids through this program.
PREVIOUS IEW EXPERIENCE REQUIRED Units 1-5 Each week there will be a writing assignment. It is strongly encouraged that students complete all of the assignments. Every child differs greatly where they are in the writing journey and homework can take 1-4 hrs depending on the assignment and child.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students are welcome and encouraged to turn in their papers for feedback. IEW utilized a checklist method for clearly communicating what is expected for each paper. Students will be encouraged to follow the checklist. I will review papers and provide positive constructive feedback but will not award letter or percentage grades. The focus of the class in writing and the writing structure and style. I will not correct spelling and in-depth punctuation. Basic quality spelling and punctuation usage is expected but perfection is not required.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
It is recommended that parents preview sources texts prior to class. All content is designed to be age-appropriate.
For simplicity's sake, It is my goal to keep as much interaction in the Oustschool classroom as possible! However, I will provide links to additional resources such as Quizlet for vocabulary review. Kahoot challenges are optional but encouraged. Submitting papers via Google Docs is required for feedback.
