I just saw that they have changed this program to be two parts with Part 1 taking up to two years. Has anyone looked at this newest version? I was hoping to score a used version of the 4th edition but now I am scared I won't be able to find new workbooks for it. ETA: the videos are now online also instead of physical discs
Hi all, I would appreciate it if you would share with me some of your experiences, both good and bad with the program - online or curriculum. We are considering the LToW during our High School years. I have heard that it's hard to teach from a number thread searches. However there are claims that the latest edition is easier. Can someone describe a bit more what a typical day looks like for you? How much work/prep time is required of you, the teacher? Can this be done somewhat independently? I'm just trying to gauge how difficult this would be for my wife while teaching our two younger dds who require more of her time. It's a real balancing act for her. That is why ease of use is important and student independence is also a consideration. As an alternative I've heard great things about the online courses. I'd enjoy hearing more about what a class is like such as Classical Rhetoric: Lost Tools of Writing, Level One. What is the interaction with the instructor and other classmates like, if any? What is the level of difficulty/challenge, including time demands? Which teachers have you had? Thanks,
I started Writing With Skill I with my sixth grader this fall, but she was so reluctant with it that I switched to just doing written narrations across the curriculum. Next year I was planning on trying again with WWS, but a friend gave me her set of Lost Tools of Writing 1 (she was ditching CC). The books look well structured, and I'm thinking I could combine next year with her sister, who will be in 6th next year. Could anyone speak to their experiences with these? Both of these kids have been doing narrations (heavily CM overall) and I'm looking for the transition into writing longer essays. TIA!
