The Lost Tools of Writing, Level One is a one or two year program (depending on the age of the student and the pace at which you wish to go), that covers primarily the persuasive essay.
Featuring eight essays and a review lesson, LTW I teaches more than a dozen schemes and tropes as well as numerous skills and techniques for coming up with ideas. By the time your student finishes the level 1 program she will be able to write a well-organized and thorough persuasive essay and will demonstrate a competency in writing that will enable her to move forward with confidence.
The Level One complete set includes a Teacher's Guide, a Student's Workbook, and a subscription to our online instructional videos.
