24 people are attending Introduction to Writing with Eva – LIVE – * A Week * – Full Year – Grades 4 – 7



UPDATE: This class is FULL; however, don’t worry – there is another section of this class.

Please go to https://www.opententacademy.com/event/introduction-to-iew-writing-with-jonathan-live-a-week-full-year-grades-4-7/ to register!


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.

Excellent class with clear and detailed guidance

Rated 5 out of 5

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

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.

My 12 year old son took this class this summer in preparation for more complicated classes in middle school and high school. I had assumed time management, use of highlighters, reading texts for comprehension, how to study for a midterm. Sure, all that was introduced, but more significantly, techniques for planning meant my son started to think and dream about his own future! What he would like to do over the next 2 years – 5 years -longer. Thanks Eva!
