I love what IEW does for student's writing. It gives them a clear rubric for what is expected. I have taken my own children through IEW 3 times each! I have taught IEW in a classroom setting for 5 years instructing students and coaching parents. I have expanded my teaching to the online platform and love it.
After each session, the student will have a 1 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.
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.
