LIVE ZOOM CLASS SESSIONS
**I am a Registered Instructor with IEW.
DRESSING UP - STYLE SESSIONS:
Using Andrew Pudewa’s Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) method, students learn specific techniques for "dressing up" their writing with four key STYLE techniques.
I will model the technique and then work with students to use these techniques in sample sentences. If time, students can create their own sentences to practice the techniques.
Thurs, May 11 - Add Pizzazz with Adverbs (-LY Adverbs)
Tues, May 16 - Give your Subjects a Boost (Who/Which Clauses)
Thurs, May 18 - Verbs that Powerlift (Strong Verbs)
Tues, May 30 - Add Context to Verbs (WWW.ASIA clauses)
BUILDING BLOCKS - STRUCTURE SESSIONS:
Based on Andrew Pudewa’s Institute for Excellence in Writing Program (Units 1, 2, and 4), students use source materials so they never face the discouraging “blank page.” They will learn specific techniques for note-taking from sources, and outlining in preparation for writing.
These classes are perfect prep for a future class, or review for struggling writers. Pair these with a few of the Dressing Up sessions to round out your student's writing with style!
Tues, May 9 - Easy Outlining and Note-taking
Tues, May 23 - Boiling it Down - Summarizing a Reference
I recommend students take the first Building Blocks session if they are not familiar with the IEW method of writing/note-taking. If the Live Class has already happened, you may purchase the recorded version (video link sent separately).
