Each family must own a copy of University-Ready Writing [Forever Streaming or DVD]. You may purchase it from IEW by clicking here.

From IEW's website: In this twelve-week video course, high school and college students learn effective note-taking strategies as they write précis (summaries) and essays, tackling assignments of varying lengths from one paragraph to several pages. With tips and tools for writing an abstract, creating and arranging content, citing sources, applying various style guides, using literary devices, and writing on-demand essays, this curriculum will prepare your students for university writing assignments.

Our purpose in having the class is not to teach it per se. (We're going to let Mr. Pudewa's video classes do the teaching.) Instead, we will get together once a week and do hands-on activities that can't really be done with a video course. We'll workshop our papers together and make sure that students genuinely master the content. Classes will last an average of 30 minutes per week, but students should budget 60 minutes for classes that run longer.

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

Amy Bell is a registered IEW instructor. You can see Amy's instructor page on IEW's website by clicking here.

Online classes meet via Zoom, and Google Classroom is where students will find and upload assignments.

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