Item # Product Description Photo Price


Young students become young journalists in the Writers' Workshop. Students develop factual and creative writing skills in a stimulating environment. Build a face and then write a story about your character. Join the Newsgroup where a bank of video shorts, photos, and reporting assignments inspire young writers to create their own sound-track scripts. Write captions, broadcasts, and reports for newspapers and magazines. Research news stories and read from a teleprompter. Students feel like professional journalists while they learn to capture their audience's attention with concise reporting.

Writer's Block taps into students' creativity as it prompts them to script and record interviews, advertisements, and plays. They also learn to write dialog and use descriptive language to create magazine-style photo stories, profiles, and biographies. The program is designed so that students can move through their projects intuitively. There's library of study points guide them along the way and projects can even be saved on the web.
