 My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Pslam 45:1

Designed for students in high school who are concurrently completing grammar and literature exercises in their home studies, this lab does address some grammar issues along with style and structure elements, but is not a complete instruction course for mechanics and use. 
Students will be introduced to or continue skills in note-taking, key word outlining, narrative writing, summaries, critiques, reports and essay writing as developed through the IEW Teaching Structure and Style intensives and curriculum with the intention of encouraging critical thinking and personal expression. We will work on each practicum with consideration for each student's academic level. They will evaluate well-written short stories, articles and essays, including Bible passages, prior to writing. 
IEW level C course material will be followed throughout the lab and the level C student notebook is required. See supply list below. (If a student has previously taken level C with me or elsewhere, repetition is recommended and the complete course will be repeated using source materials for Character Based, History and Bible writing passages published by IEW.) If you are in question as to whether or not your child should repeat level C work, please contact Veronica Pedraza (409-549-2386)

Grades will be kept so that, at the parent's discretion, they may be incorporated into each student's English I or II grade. 
Compositions will be evaluated for grammar, mechanics and structure for the benefit of the student and parents. 
 
The goal? To learn to write well. God has given us a desire to express thoughts and hearts and often we are able to do that in writing far better than through articulation if we are aware of the structural methods that should be applied. Once those methods are clear, writing becomes a means of expressing and sharing instead of a chore.

NOTE: This lab will require students to work on assignments at home. Parents are encouraged to reduce writing exercises at home to allow for the completion of the lab assignments. If students arrive unprepared repeatedly, we encourage parents and students to re-evaluate their participation in this lab.

Bio-- I am a lover of Jesus Christ and am passionate about learning about Him through Him and His creation. In teaching,  I hope to share with students a desire for learning for His glory. The Bachelor of Science degree I hold has only a small impact upon my teaching, since I have learned most of what I really know through home teaching my own children over the past 30 years as I have learned how to meet their needs. My husband, Don, and I reside in Groves with the youngest three of our eight children. Each of the grown children value their home education and have found great success in both college and current employment. We love to encourage others who are considering homeschooling and those who are actively homeschooling. It is for this reason that we have established or helped establish a variety of homeschool groups or co-ops and continue to look for ways to encourage, edify and equip those who have taken on the task homeschooling. Grace and peace to you on your journey!!
