2024-2025 School Year

IEW 2 Intermediate Middle School Writing GVL

Mondays Only.

Course Description

This class will require daily parent supervision/teaching. We will be teaching from the Structure and Style for Students: Year 2 Level B [Binder & Student Packet]. This course will pick up where our IEW1 class leaves off.

Students will be working on grammar/usage, MLA format, and other elements of composition throughout the year. Research has shown that if our students can write well by the end of junior high, then they will be more successful in all areas of high school work.

Additionally, students will work through the editing portion of IEW’s Fix It!, The Frog Prince, Book 5.  Students will be assigned sections to edit each week.  This will serve as a complete grammar/editing program.

To be successful in this class:

This course will include daily assignments throughout each week. Students will be expected to take notes during class. Like the previous IEW classes, this writing class requires a considerable amount of parent involvement. Parents are required to edit papers with students each week as well as sign the checklist indicating their involvement throughout the week.
