LEVEL UP LEADERSHIP
Winter Teen Session
KIDS AGED 12 AND UP
Level Up Leadership is crafted to encourage critical thinking that will train a generation of leaders!
Thursdays: March 1st to March 22nd, 2018
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
75 Wakefield Crescent
Cost: $60 for 4 weeks
*All supplies needed for class including books, binders and extra materials are included.
ESSAY WRITING 1:00 – 2:30
This class introduces kids to essay writing. Students will read two short stories at home and come to class prepared to compare and contrast the themes and symbolism presented. Additionally, students will practice writing in class and develop positive peer editing. The session begins with paragraph writing and progresses each week; by the end of four weeks they will have written their own essay. My hope is to remove the stress and fear of essay writing by teaching it as a formula and gently increasing the difficulty each week. Students will be required to complete the assigned reading at home before class, and to complete minimal writing assignments.
BREAK 2:30 – 3:00
We will follow our thematic discussions and essay practice with a short break. Students can bring a snack if they choose (no peanuts please!) or just relax with their friends.
LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE 3:00 – 4:00
We will end our reading and discussion with a fun group challenge! A favorite for many young adults, this portion of our day is about winning a challenge of some kind. Usually in groups, the students must use their brains to complete an unusual task with only the supplies given. Creativity wins! This incorporates many of the topics already discussed in the group and often ties in to the curriculum directly.
I believe this four week program will enrich students with a deeper understanding of critical thinking skills and a desire to write!
