: I will be using the curriculum called Lost Tools of Writing
. In the past I have had the students purchase a workbook, but I feel it is redundant and filled with too much busywork. I like to have the students use Google Docs for their assignments.
Additionally, the student will be required to read one classic of their choosing to use a basis of their essay (see some choices below).
The online class will be taught in two 45-minute classes weekly (Mondays and Wednesdays) and will require daily assignments as explained on Canvas.
We will explore one essay in 9 lessons, with each lesson taking three weeks. By the end of the year, the student will have finished a polished essay on their topic. They will have expanded their minds, lengthened their writing abilities, and dispelled their fears of writing. For those who want a challenge, they are invited to write a new essay every lesson (9 lessons).
Choose one powerful classic to use as a foundation for the essay below (or you may choose your own):
- The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (this is the book which LTW uses as their example throughout the student workbook and may be a good choice for the younger students who need much more help)
- The Secret Garden
- The Scarlet Letter
- Hamlet, Shakespeare
- JRR Tolkien’s series
- Lord of the Flies
- Jane Eyre
- Les Miserables
- The Brothers Karamazov
- War and Peace
- Anna Karenina
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- Or choose any classic that has a deep and powerful moral lesson and begin reading as soon as possible.
