Who's coming?

13 people are attending Asynchronous – High School Research & More Writing – Full Year – Grades 9-12

Wyatt Jarrell

Please note – this is a PRE-RECORDED  using the IEW Writing philosophy Asynchronous Class.

Students will work through the modules independently.  

There are fourteen modules in all.

Students will print out class notes PRIOR to the class, which can be found in CANVAS.

Then, they will need to watch the class recording (posted in CANVAS).

After that, using their ASSIGNMENT PLANNER and COMPOSITION CHECKLIST, students will then complete the accompanying assignment.

The students will submit their work in CANVAS and WAIT until graded BEFORE going onto next module.

Grading time is approximately 5 – 6 days.

All modules must be completed by June 1, 2022.  

PAPERS that are submitted AFTER June 1, 2022 will NOT be graded.

*******

High School Research and More consists of two major components:  College Application Essays and a Semester Long Term Paper.

During the first half of the year, the students will also learn how to write a solid personal essay; these types of essays will help them with gaining admission to competitive summer programs, internships, colleges, and help their chances towards earning scholarships.

During the second half of the year, students will focus on the RESEARCH TERM PAPER.  Students will learn how to dissect these “long, scary assignments” and break them down into manageable chunks. We will examine how to break down a (approximately) fifteen to twenty page “assigned” term paper using time management and organizational skills. The student will learn how to:

  • Research with multiple sources
  • Utilize an online database via the public library
  • Merge notes together to limit and choose the most appropriate information for their topic
  • Write a solid thesis statement
  • Write from their notes making sure all notes are appropriate for their topic
  • Use IN TEXT citations
  • Write an MLA bibliography, transitional paragraphs, introductory and concluding paragraphs

This class is fast-paced, with the emphasis on EDITING – TRULY EDITING, using their COMPOSITION CHECKLIST. The goal is for the student to understand that writing takes TIME and cannot be done successfully in just one or two brief sittings. The students ARE expected to work at home for a minimum of 45 minutes per weekday on their “homework” – which is given at the end of each class.

IMPORTANT:  If students have not taken one of Eva’s IEW Writing classes before PLEASE speak with her at [email protected]  prior to registering.  It is expected that students know how to write a five-paragraph research paper, IEW Stylistic Techniques and editing skills.

NOTE: Registration deadline is January 1, 2022.

Excellent class with clear and detailed guidance

Rated 5 out of 5
August 1, 2021

I believe my rising 7th grader has greatly benefited from taking the summer Powerful Paragraphs class from Eva. There were precise and detailed instructions on brainstorming, constructing varied and expressive sentences, and usage of transitional phrases, all in the context of the different writing structures they studied each week. The weekly reviews of past lessons and the incremental addition of new stylistic techniques were great reinforcement for the concepts being thoughts. It was also useful to have the numerous sample writings provided for reference with each lesson. Through out the class, they kids had a growing list of “banned” words to encourage them to choose more expressive and nuanced alternatives (started with one or two and grew to maybe ~15). Overall, a great class for my child who is still in the early stages of honing his essay writing skills.

Unsung Heroes

Rated 5 out of 5

My daughter loved learning about “unsung heroes” of the Civil Rights Movement: individuals who deserve recognition, but receive little in the history books. Ms. Eva ties in historical background information extremely well to the book to help understand the bigger picture to further appreciate Claudette Colvin’s courage.

Perfect Intro to Life Course for my Homeschooler

Rated 5 out of 5
May 31, 2022

My 9th grader is privileged to have two older siblings who are currently trying their hands at adulting, so he can passivley learn from their success… and failures, but he was ready for more. This is Life was perfect for him! Enough information to engage him where he was and take him to the next level. The course was well-planned and relevant, with a lot of interaction. We are so happy that we took a chance on Open Tent Academy. This first course did not disappoint.

This class should be mandatory!

I signed up my 8th grader to take this class because I wanted him to start thinking of his future. What I didn’t expect is him initiating meaningful discussion about our costs off living, inflation, budgeting, work-life balance etc. My son will be attending a college-prep high school this fall and has already told me that he wasn’t “going to be one of those kids who blows over $100.00 a month on lattes at the cafeteria!”. I am so thankful for this class. It really got my son thinking of his future!
