Multi-sensory Creative Writing, incorporating IEW techniques

Thursdays at 9:00-10:00am CST

June 13th-August 15th; no class on July 4th

Suggested age: 10-14, although we will consider younger or older students at the discretion of the parent.

After purchasing this class, you will receive downloadable instructions via email.

Note: IEW discontinued the Student Resource Notebook, but they are still selling the Student Resource Packet. If you purchased the SRN previously, you can keep using that. Everyone else needs to purchase the Student Resource Packet. :)

Note: This is not an IEW class per se, but we do teach IEW concepts in this class because they are too fantastic to leave out!

The course requirements do not dictate precisely how much material must be written per assignment. Guidelines will be given, but depending on the ability and writing experience of the student, assignment length may be adjusted by each child’s parent. This class will teach students how to glean writing prompts from their surroundings and how to generate their own unique ideas for poems, stories, journaling, blogging, etc. During each weekly session, students will participate in a sensory activity that will enable them to brainstorm creative story ideas. Each activity will be followed by an in-class writing session. There will also be weekly homework, designed to take no more than 30 minutes per week to complete. 

Note: Sometimes students in this class are inspired to write a LOT. We're always excited to see that they are getting so much out of the class! However, because we grade scores of papers each week, we can only read two or three pages of each student's homework. We encourage our really loquacious writers to start their own blogs and share their ideas with the world!

Parents are responsible for editing rough drafts for basic spelling and punctuation; final grades are based solely on the student's completion of the checklist.

Classes meet via Zoom.

If a student is unable to complete the class for some reason, they will still have access to the videos. :)
