Description: This writing skills class is based on the Excellence in Writing (IEW) program by Andrew Pudewa.  Students do not need prior writing experience but must be able to form a complete sentence.  Students will learn to write keyword outlines and then transform that outline into the writing of a paragraph including style elements that make the writing more varied and interesting.  Basic punctuation, grammar, and proofreading practice are included in this class.  A three-paragraph report will be assigned during the second semester, as well as writing new stories from old fables and from pictures.  Parent involvement greatly increases student success.  Weekly homework assigned of 1-2 hours, with the goal of keeping writing fun and successful!  It works!  Note: An additional fee of $10/family will be collected at the beginning of the year to purchase a group license for IEW materials.
