IEW for Beginners
We will use the Institute for Excellence in Writing technique to learn how to write. This is for beginners, but all students must be able to read well. First, they will learn how to write outlines and give speeches on their outlines. Then we will move into writing a paragraph from that outline. Next, we will add dress-ups, topic/clincher sentences and strong openers to our paragraphs. We will start with nonfiction paragraphs and move to narrative stories. Beginning writer 6th graders are also welcome.
