Can you tell us a bit more? In what way is she struggling? Is it hard to come up with ideas? Or to develop them, or to structure them?
What feedback or criticism is she getting from school?

I teach CW and am very happy to give tips but want to know more so I can offer specific, helpful advice.

Grr, just wrote you an enormously long post, with all the planning and development stages outlined in it, but hadn't logged in, so it didn't save. :roll:

I will PM you when I have a moment. Got to go and pick boys up from cubs now.

I will 999. That's why i did initially. But it took about an hour, then I lost it, and I'm flat out with deadlines this week now. So will come back to it and post it properly here as a reference tool.
