Class Experience

By the end of this 4-session class, students will have written 4 short stories. They will understand how to organize a story into a story sequence chart and clearly communicate the main elements of a story. They will have learned several "dress-ups" and "decorations" style techniques to enhance their story. 
I love what IEW does for student's writing. It gives them a clear rubric for what is expected. I am a certified IEW instructor and have been teaching this program for over 8 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.
After each session, the student will have a 3 paragraph paper to write. Participation in-class activities, challenges, and peer reviews will make this a rich experience for students. I desire that each of my students utilize the resources provide for them.
 2 files available upon enrollment
Please be able to submit papers via Google Docs. Handwritten papers can be scanned or photographed. Before class print the Source Document and Outlining Template 1-2 pieces of lined paper and writing utensils.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
 The IEW utilized a checklist method for clearly communicating what is expected for each paper. Students will be encouraged to follow the checklist.  Students may turn in their papers for Teacher review and feedback.  Grammar and spelling corrections are not focused on but are sometimes addressed. Basic editing should be done by the student and/or parent. 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
For simplicity's sake, It is my goal to keep as much interaction in the Oustschool classroom as possible!  Submission of papers via google docs is STRONGLY encouraged as it allows me to give the most concise feedback. 

Source Documents will be posted in the Classroom and students will need to print them off.
