Class Description

“Students explore fascinating aspects of the ancient world while learning to write using the ‘Structure and Style’ writing method! Ancient literature and a wide variety of other noteworthy topics will supply a rich foundation for imaginative and enjoyable writing. Students will work through IEW Units 1-9 as they learn to take notes, retell narrative stories, summarize references, write from pictures, summarize multiple references, write essays, and compose formal critiques.” (description from publisher)

We will read through a different source text each week, go over any unfamiliar vocabulary, and create an outline together in class. Students will use their outline to formulate their own sentences and paragraphs at home, using a checklist with specific guidelines. Writing assignments will be collected the following week and returned the week thereafter.
