LTWN 360 is our signature year-round program with courses offered to Grades 1 through 8. We provide a comprehensive curriculum that cycles through five workshops: Readers’, Writers’, Grammar and Essays, Creative Writing, and Speech + Debate. Our goal is to give students the critical thinking and communication skills needed for future academic success. We create lifelong learners who think critically and communicate effectively through small class sizes and inspiring lessons.
Any student could benefit from extra language arts instruction! LTWN 360 is perfect for both avid and reluctant readers and writers looking for a fun yet a rigorous opportunity to strengthen their comprehension and communication skills outside school hours.
We’ve structured the year-long program into five parts. While we will focus on the individual modules over an eight-week window, students will experience highlights of all the other modules while a specific module of the workshop is in session. For example, when the Reader’s Workshop is in session, students will also be writing for the comprehension questions, learning some grammar concepts that come as part of reading, creatively presenting their responses to reading in their mini-lessons, and will be speaking/debating in the class regarding the text/book being taught.
Students in LTWN 360 meet weekly for 75-minutes over Zoom from September to July, with breaks for holidays. We utilize Google Classroom, Kami, and our LTWN App to deliver mini-lessons, homework, and daily writing prompts.
Each week, students receive individual feedback on their work from our team of dedicated graders. At the end of each trimester, students complete a portfolio project that challenges them to utilize the skills they’ve gained.
By the end of the program, your child will be a confident writer, reader, speaker, and–most importantly–thinker. They’ll develop analytical and problem-solving skills and deepen their emotional intelligence, empathy, and creativity. In addition, they’ll be better able to process and remember complex content and learn the value of a diligent and curious mind.
And that’s just the beginning! LTWN always watches out for your child and supports parents and students along their academic journeys.
As the late and great Maya Angelou once said, “I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.” Here at LTWN, we hold Angelou’s words as a flame of truth. We are eager to see what your child can do today so that we may guide them to be their very best tomorrow.
