Creative Writing IEW (Level A & Level B)

Creative Writing IEW (Level A & Level B)  

This 30 week 1-1/2 hour class is built on the Institute for Excellence in Writing, Teaching Writing: Structure and Style. The majority of assignments will be from the IEW curriculum. However, these will also be alternated with assignments with more flexibility and freedom, including poetry, journalism writing, speech writing, and brainstorming.

Students will learn to take notes, summarize narrative stories, write 3 paragraph stories, write from pictures, and compose creative essays from the brain. This approach provides a structured approach to unleashing creativity and building communication skills.

The class includes weekly writing lab with peer feedback and teacher review. Students will present their papers and gain experience in oral presentation skills. There will be weekly writing assignments.

***Access to computer and printer are required. All final papers must be typed and printed
