Lightbulb Teaching to Lunge, groundwork basics

I have taken on a new project for the year. I have bought a 2 year old paint named Sprinkles. I just halter broke her and she is now ready for the next step. Only problem is most my methods I have used in the past for teaching to lunge. Such as steping in pointing and cracking the whip behind her on the ground just don't seem to get it through to her about what I want her to do or what direction to go. I get her going to her left very well, but she's not paying any attention to me at all. So, what other teaching methods of lunge and groundwork in a roundpen can I do so I can improve and start to work forward to breaking her. She knows to back, turn to sides, come to me and pick her feet up. Lunging is a whole new theory to her, any suggestions?
