Class Description: The Excellence In Writing Curriculum is used to provide a "practice" for quality writing. Students are given source texts to "rewrite" by incorporating a system of "dress-ups" and "sentence openers". The elements of the curriculum are added as the students master the concepts. In addition the Fix-It grammar editing curriculum is used to model quality writing using the IEW method and to introduce standardized vocabulary found on many grade level standardized tests. Upper level students will discover the basic essay model and be given opportunity to write five paragraph assignments.This class is best suited for those with at least one year of IEW.
