UPDATE: This class is FULL; however, don’t worry – there is another section of this class.
This is an interactive, introductory IEW based class geared towards middle and upper elementary level students. In this class, students will focus on brainstorming, note taking and writing both fiction and nonfiction pieces. Writing structures will include: summarizing nonfiction, narrative summaries, beginning story writing using narrative summaries, beginning report writing, writing from pictures, and beginning essay writing. Simultaneously, students will also learn how to implement various stylistic techniques to increase description, as well as remove “banned words” (overused, boring words) from their writing.
Each week, Eva will review past lessons to encourage mastery. Parents are encouraged to actively participate in the homework process. Scribing for your child is acceptable (however, don’t change their words!).
Students are encouraged to repeat this class twice. The first year tends to be overwhelming, and in most cases the second year is when their internal “light bulbs switch on” and writing happens!
Please note this section is a larger class. Jonathan Meola offers a smaller group version of this class. Homework is approximately two hours per week (30 minutes daily).
NOTE: Registration deadline is September 15, 2021.
There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
People & Places - a NEW class for the YOUNGER students!
I was not quite sure what to expect from him or from an IEW class for kids that young and I appreciate how gentle, patient, and enthusiastic you were in guiding the kids through. You covered so much more than I was expecting with that age group while at the same time always trying to meet them where they were. I’m very glad that your class was what I chose for my son’s first experience with longer class meetings and real homework.
People & Places - GREAT addition to OTA's Writing Line Up!
And as a homeschool parent, I really appreciate the PEOPLE & PLACES WRITING class. I love that it is truly academic with clear expectations and helpful feedback on the assignments. So glad we found OTA!
High Quality Class!
My daughter has been enjoying this writing class. The class is well organized with step-by-step instructions. Eva is very knowledgeable, patient and supportive. The source texts in this writing class are good selected.
A blessing to our family!
Open Tent Academy has been such a blessing to my family!
My 9th grader enrolled in a year-long Writing course, All About Essays, this year with Ms. Eva and has thoroughly enjoyed the class. His writing has improved ten-fold! We couldn’t be more pleased.
This spring, his sisters have joined him, taking Starting IEW From the Very Beginning and Profiles of History. Both girls love their classes and look forward to each week.
All three of my children have learned so much!
Thank you, OTA!
Much more than just a business - you've changed my son's life and future!
If it wasn’t for Eva’s Writing Classes, which my son has taken for the last five years, J would, without a doubt, not be where he is today. The graduation speech as salutatorian that he wrote is a direct result of your teachings.
I thank God every time he tackles a paper. He uses every skill he has learned from your classes. Again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
I know it is a business you run, but it is much more than that. You have truly changed my son’s life and future.
