3rd- 4th English
Teacher: Ashley Knickerbocker (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Description: Using IEW (Institute for Excellence in Writing) writing concepts and daily grammar practice, this class will give students a strong foundation in writing grammar and style. Students will learn the IEW key-word outline system for analyzing a paragraph, recognizing important information from a source text, and retelling a story or fact-based report in their own words. Additionally, through the Easy Grammar system, students will receive basic grammar instruction (verbs, nouns, prepositions, capitalization and punctuation, sentence structure, etc.), and will complete weekly practice at home with the Easy Grammar student workbook. Applying these concepts through writing, storytelling, presentations, lapbook activities and games is sure to make learning English fun and memorable. This class pairs well with, but is not dependant on, 3rd-4th grade History, which meets the hour just before this class.
Tuition fee: $340 ($34.00 per month for 10 months, August - May)
