These structured courses utilize Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) materials to build confidence and proficiency in all types of writing: fiction, non-fiction, playwriting and poetry. The method allows the teacher to address individual needs while moving the group through a series of literature based units.  The outlining, keywording and organizational skills taught in the courses serve both written and oral presentations. Developing structure, style and voice will be emphasized. Students self-evaluate homework via provided rubrics and the teacher provides feedback as well.


Intended for students in grades 4-8* who have already had some experience with IEWmaterials, Continuing IEW meets once a week for 28 weeks for 75-minute classes. All materials necessary for the course will be provided by Greenhouse included in tuition. Prospective students will need to complete a 10-minute online assessment to ensure their readiness.Students should expect to spent 30-45 minutes 3-4 times a week on homework.

*Motivated students in grades 7-8 can often navigate Continuing IEW without having had previous IEW experience. Teacher approval will be needed.
