The above link will give you information into a new online writing program I have finally been able to develop and get the manpower for. Do not let the name fool you, the class is open to all writers, however the prompts and sections are geared toward young writers. This only means that the program will be basic and start with the basics.
These are some examples of courses within Section 1:
Point of View review:
Assignment: write your bio as a story line in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person
Assignment: choose a picture and write a story line bio for that person. Be sure to include age, back story, something about the present. Do not include too much physical detail (that is the next course). Write this in the 1st person and then 3rd person
Direct & Indirect Description:
Assignment: Choose a picture then write the physical traits of that person using direct and indirect descriptions. Write this in the 1st person and then the 3rd person.
There will be one standing assignment due each week, plus a month long assignment due each week. For Section 1 the month long assignment is to find a group of 2-3 people and capture a picture (the picture can be taken from an advertisement or from real life). The student will create a short story as to what this group is doing. A lesson in people watching and finding your stories.
