Course Description: IEW 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.  We will be using Structure & Style for Students, Year 1, Level A.   Students will take notes, summarize narrative stories and references, write from pictures, put together a mini research report, and compose creative essays.

In Fix It! Grammar, students will learn and continually review parts of speech, punctuation, capitalization rules, and sentence structure as they edit sections of Town Mouse and Country Mouse.  At the end of the year, they will have edited the entire story.

Students should expect to spend about four to five hours per week on homework.
