Show synopsis "Writing for Life" motivates students by using real-life situations to answer the question "what's the point," and uses unique visual interpretations of the writing process to make it accessible to developmental writers. This revolutionary text will transform the developmental classroom -- and transform students' writing and lives. With a ground-breaking design developed in conjunction with Dorling Kindersley Publishers (DK) that makes writing, reading and thinking processes visible, "Writing for Life"shows the processes rather than just telling students about them.

Henry's 25 years of classroom experience and her studies into learning theory research, making it a powerful, relevant tool for teaching writing.
