IEW assignment has them writing about King Belshazzar and the fall of Babylon. The paper needs to begin with the great king overlooking his kingdom and admiring all that he has accomplished. However, we wanted to use stronger verbs than 'looked', so we started a list. Then we added adverbs to tell us 'how he looked' at his kingdom. Finally we drafted a list of adjectives to help us describe and modify the wonders of his kingdom.
I've entitled this post Part 1 because my son has loved this assignment, and his paper is coming together beautifully. I'm assuming I'll post about it a second time before the assignment is completed.
