I was so excited when I unwrapped the box and realized my parents had gotten me the bike I had been hinting about for months. I wanted to ride it right away, and ran to get my coat. But Dad stopped me in my tracks when he said I was going to have to put it together first. Who gives their kid a bike they have to assemble? A homeschooling parent. I found the screwdriver and instructions stuffed in the toe of my stocking hanging over the fireplace.

This writing sample is an example of this week’s writing assignment for Write Now!

Write about a unique way you learned something (maybe by attending an event, hands-on, making a mistake, an experiment, through music, art, science–whatever).

Students are learning how to write in a variety of styles for a number of online audiences. To see a recent lesson, click here.

If you have a student who needs some new encouragement for writing, sign up for our online writing class.

For $7.95 a month, students get weekly lessons, writing prompts, feedback from professional writers, and perhaps best of all, an opportunity to publish their writing online.
