Word Tamer

By Judy Waite
This site is looking for storytellers who want to make stars of their stories. Wordtamer is a website where you tame words and train stories.

Explore the fun fair. When you roll over the signs, they will glitter as you glide past. Choose one, click on it, and let it take you to your first challenge. Play around with ideas. Get inspiration about plot, characters, themes as you write your stories.

Capture fresh new writing possibilities. All your ideas can be saved, printed & developed off-line.

Join the new generation of story tellers.

"My eCoach provides me with lots of great tools which I can use as part of my new teacher training program. Information can be found all in one place and accessed from anywhere! Using our Team Page, I quickly post program updates. With the Universal Builder, I've created a web site for everyone's common questions. I've learned a great deal about my teachers and their practice through our Forum, and my teachers have been able to network and share their terrific teaching ideas. My team coaches and I are able to provide timely feedback for our new teachers' learning plans--no more NCR forms!

My eCoach provides increased opportunities for communication, quick access to customized online resources, and the ability to collect program data and improve accountability."
