Introduction to Writing with Jonathan – SMALL GROUP – LIVE – * A Week * – Full Year – Grades 4 – 7
Tuesday, October 5 2021 @ 1:00PM – Tuesday, May 24 2022 @ 2:30PM EDT
This is an interactive, introductory IEW 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 session, Jonathan 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 small group section! 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.
