In this class, your middle schooler will be working through Medieval History-Based Writing Lessons from the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW). This course takes the students through units six to nine of the program. Your child will use what they learned in part one to continue making outlines. He will summarize multiple references (research report), write from a prompt (inventive writing), compose a formal essay and critique. In the midst of all that writing, your child will learn how...
Students will learn 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 adding parts of speech such as adverbs, strong verbs, and quality adjectives. Students will also practice varied sentence structure by using different sentence openers.
Homework will be assigned each week. You can expect up to two hours of work to be done outside of class, depending on the unit we are studying. Google Docs is mandatory for grading purposes. Vocabulary quizzes will also be assigned, but are optional for participation.
