IEW 2 – 4th Period Friday (5th-6th)
$290.00 – $340.00
In this course, students will learn IEW’s Structure and Style® in writing. As students move through various American History themes and topics, they incrementally learn and review the models of structure and elements of style. Students will move through the first eight (of nine) units in a step-by-step method with clear directives that help reduce confusion and build confidence in their writing ability. They will learn to create outlines, summarize narrative stories, construct a research report, and essays. Additionally, stylistic techniques will be taught incrementally to move students from a basic to a more sophisticated style of writing.
This course offers a literature component that you may add for your child at home. It complements the U.S. History time period we will be covering in our writing.
