Ethan’s First Outline

We’ve been blessed to review Excellence in Writing. I’m still going through the material but wanted to start with Ethan right away. We started a day after receiving our package, so I’m not sure if we are doing it the correct way just yet.

Yesterday I had Ethan read from an old Rod and Staff Science book. I don’t even think they sell this one anymore. So if any of you have the second book I’d be happy to buy it.

Once we read the selected paragraphs . . .

Together we outlined each paragraph. He selected three words from each sentence. I helped a little.

Today I had him reread the paragraphs, then look at his paper and go through each sentence. As he orally gave me a complete sentence, I copied it down (we did this for the first paragraph only). Then I had him copy the paragraph in his writing notebook.

Tomorrow we’ll work on his second paragraph. I know it’s not exactly the way IEW is suppose to be done but I’m still working through the material. Next week I’ll start Caleb and Brent with it as well.
