Required text: IEW’s Following Narnia Vol. 1: Lion’s Song, third edition, January 2016. I will purchase this for you with your materials fee.
Students also need to read The Magician’s Nephew and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, as some of our lessons will refer to specific scenes in the books.
Prerequisite: Former students receive priority seating.
This class is a logical next class for students who took IEW World History-based writing lessons last year. However, since I am teaching this curriculum at two different class times, there will be room for new students. If you have a middle school student who has never taken IEW before, this can also be a great place for students to start formal writing instruction IF their parents are committed to helping them at home. I will help you learn how to do this, parents! My fifty minutes of weekly instruction will get your students started, but your input is vital. Writing, like any skill, requires practice and consistent instruction. Slow and steady wins the race!
Parents are expected to help their students with their weekly homework and edit the student rough drafts. Consistent parental involvement and communication with me are extremely important for students to make progress in their writing skills in this class.
