Within the supportive and engaging environment of an authentic writing community, growing writers struggle together through the hard parts of writing, as well as celebrate together finished products by presenting in Author’s Chair. While drafting, revising, and editing various writing projects (including narrative, expository, and imaginative works), students develop skills and confidence in the Six Traits of Good Writing: ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency and conventions. Students learn to give and receive encouraging and specific feedback. The teacher also provides feedback through in-class conferences, and parents are equipped and encouraged to give conferences at home. The inspiring environment emphasizes growing as skilled and confident writers – and thriving as followers of Christ, growing together in authentic community.


Intended for 1st and 2nd year Writer's Workshop students in grades 6-8, but also open to 5th graders who have taken IEW Writing, these sections meet once a week for 28 weeks for 75-minute classes. All materials necessary for the course will be provided by Greenhouse included in tuition.  Students should expect to spent 30-45 minutes 3-4 times a week on homework. This section of the course can be profitably repeated twice.
