IEW: Fables Myths & Fairy Tales – 2nd Period Friday
$285.00 – $335.00
A wide variety of adventures will supply a rich foundation for imaginative and enjoyable writing. The Institute for Excellence in Writing’s unique approach provides the structure that students need to develop confidence in the writing process while gradually guiding them toward greater independence and creativity. Your student will work through IEW Units 1–7 structural models where they will learn to take notes, retell narrative stories, summarize references, write from pictures, write simple reports, and compose their own fables, myths, and fairy tales. Additionally, stylistic techniques are taught incrementally to move students from the basics into more sophisticated writing. This class will also incorporate vocabulary development, read-alouds, and an introduction to public speaking.
Course Expectations: Although students who are enrolled in this course do not need to have any previous experience with IEW writing, they are expected to know the basics of punctuation and sentence construction. They should have some experience with writing short paragraphs. Students will be expected to complete any assigned writing and vocabulary exercises as listed on the syllabus prior to class time each week.
