Course Description:  This class will cover writing, grammar, and vocabulary.  IEW’s Student Writing Intensive lays a solid foundation of writing skills. Students will learn how to effectively use a wide range of structural models and stylistic techniques in their compositions, as they write on a variety of enjoyable fiction and non-fiction topics.  Moving through seven units, students will take notes, summarize narrative stories, write from pictures, put together a mini research report, and compose creative essays. We will use IEW’s Fix-It for grammar.  As students learn concepts each week, they search for and correct errors within a reading passage.  Then they rewrite it correctly.  This allows the students to apply their grammar knowledge in context.
