Structure & Style – Part 3

Structure and Style Year 1 Level A (part 3) – online writing course

In Units 1 to 6 of IEW’s programme, source text and pictures are provided, which students use as the basis for their writing. Now in Unit 7, students are presented with the formerly dreaded, but now-not-so-much; blank page.

Unit 7: Inventive Writing – students will learn a structure and process to take what they know about various subjects and topics, and organise and write about them. It might be describing a personal experience or someone they know, writing a letter, or comparing two things. Depending on the number of topics required and the student’s level, their creative writing may include 1 to 3 paragraphs, along with an introduction and conclusion.

They will also learn a new stylistic technique, the sentence opener. These are used to varying the sentence structure in order to make the writing sound more interesting, and avoid a boring rhythm. In Unit 7, students will learn the first of these.
