In this 2.5-hour class, adult participants will see firsthand how Lost Tools addresses: -the three challenges that face every writer -how to come up with an issue to write about -how to think of what to say about that issue -how to organize ideas and arrange them in an outline -how to lay the groundwork for clear structure and expression in writing Whether you are new to the program or experienced, teaching it yourself or the parent of a student enrolled in a Lost Tools class, this workshop will lead you through the tips and tricks in the best way possible: by actually working through some lessons as a student! No books or preparation necessary (and I promise, no homework!). This class is intended for parents and teachers, but teens (12 and up) are welcome to attend and participate alongside a parent who is also attending live and participating.
