Write Source

Write Source is the "best thing since sliced bread," when it comes to guiding students through each step of the writing process for each type of writing assignment. After using the book for the first day the books were available, 13 students (last year) asked if they could buy the text. 60 of my students bought the book to help them perfect their writing. The purchase of this book is optional.
