Touchstones Discussion Project’s innovative educational materials help children of all ages to develop crucial leadership and Language-Arts skills through discussion-based learning techniques.
Often traditional classroom settings leave students lacking important skills—such as the ability to collaborate and the drive for leadership—and fail to be accommodating for all kinds of learners. Ideal of home-educational curricula and co-ops designed to be adaptive and flexible for their students, Touchstones innovative lessons are crafted to bring participants together for guided conversations on topics of perennial importance. Using short readings pulled from classic works of literature, history, and philosophy, Touchstones discussions will boost your child’s self-confidence, build skills necessary for effective listening and self-expression, increase critical thinking and reading capacities, and provide the opportunity for meaningful engagement with peers.
