Bring to every class:
- IEW Student Lesson Book for the appropriate class (purchased from IEW at www.excellenceinwriting.com)
- Binder with notebook paper
- 1 set of vocabulary cards (template to be given on the first day of class)
- Pen, pencil, highlighter
- A dictionary/thesaurus (paper or electronic)
Final Draft Notebook
Students are required to have a 1/2 inch binder with at least 25 clear protector sheets in it at home. When a final draft of a paper is returned, the students must polish it by making the corrections that have been noted. (They do not have to re-label the polished draft.) Students place the polished copy in their notebook to have as a permanent record of their work to show friends and family. I will periodically be checking the notebooks to be sure that the students are keeping up, and extra tickets for added elements such as drawings or pictures will be awarded. The students can be creative and make this binder something they can be proud of!
