Teaching someone else to do something is truly rewarding. When they put what you taught into practice and do it well, that is a thing worth celebrating.
This book sprouted from the desire to challenge my students to take their writing assignments to the next level. I wanted them to finish the term confident in their writing abilities and secure that they had the skills needed to move on to the next phase of their college career or into their chosen profession. As I planned my lessons and scheduled activities, I worked on coming up with an idea that would not only inspire them to put their very best efforts into their writing assignments, but that would give them a memento of success to look back on to remind them that they are indeed good writers, good students and successful people.
