All students must own a copy of the student manual for this course. You may purchase it from IEW by clicking here.

This themed writing unit is a wonderful option for new or remedial learners. Because of its brilliantly methodical approach and the use of checklists, it works equally well for enthusiastic and reluctant writers.

Note from Miss Amy: "I love magical lands and faraway places! Specifically chosen by IEW's wonderful curriculum team, these source texts will expand your children's horizons and open up their imaginations! The spiral-bound student book includes many worksheets, which are helpful for solidifying concepts. If necessary, parents can review the worksheets between classes to help them understand what has been taught. This is such an exciting book!"

Structure and Style is a highly acclaimed writing method that benefits both reluctant and eager writers, and everyone in between! Susan Barton recommends it for dyslexic students as well. While all students benefit from parental involvement, children with learning challenges will need extra parental support at home; I suggest these parents attend classes alongside their children.

The organization of materials is highly logical and uses the mastery approach: EZ+1. Students refer to checklists throughout so that each student has the tools to achieve 100% on every assignment. Students who fail to complete the checklist requirements before turning in an assignment will have at least one opportunity to correct their mistakes.

For this special course, the instructor will advance at the pace of the students, taking longer with some assignments if necessary. The result is that some groups of students will not entirely finish the book, but they will still be prepped to begin a new class next year. The ultimate goal is mastery of presented skills, not 100% completion of the course.

All assignments must be typed, either by the student or a parent. Parents are responsible for editing rough drafts for spelling and punctuation; final grades are based solely on the student's completion of the checklist.
