English 1 – IEW Following Narnia: Writing & Grammar (6th-7th)
$325.00 – $375.00
Using the first three novels of The Chronicles of Narnia® (The Magician’s Nephew, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and The Horse and His Boy), this series of 30 lessons (with two bonus lessons) beckons students to experience the enchanted land of Narnia through the Structure and Style® writing method.
The Student Book gives reading assignments from the novels, source texts on related topics, checklists, assignments, wordlists, and more! (The Teacher’s Manual is an optional component of the course. It guides the teacher/parent through each lesson with in-depth explanations, tips for teaching, checklists, and other notes that will ensure that you and your students are successful with Following Narnia.)
In this course students will use the IEW writing method to take notes and create simple outlines, summarize narrative stories, construct a mini research report and compose creative essays. The class will use IEW Following Narnia, Volume 1.This approach to learning to write provides the structure that students need in order to develop confidence in the writing process. Additionally, stylistic techniques (strong verbs, quality adjectives, use of adverbial clauses, sentence openers, etc.) will be taught incrementally to move students from the basics to more sophisticated writing.
This class will also have a Grammar Review and Vocabulary Development component
