not yet rated|write a review

There is much in this book to inspire any writer to seek more in his or her own writing: to pay attention to sounds, smells, people, and dialogue. Because Judith’s voice is strong, offering such a real and rich invitation, my students will listen.
–Penny Kittle, author of Write Beside Them

Young-adult novelist Judith Ortiz Cofer will inspire your high writers with stories and poems drawn from her childhood in Puerto Rico and her self-invention as an American writer and teacher. And, in a practical Resource section a the back of the book, Judith speaks to the craft of writing and shares the tools she has forged to generate ideas and help her writing speak the truth more strongly and clearly–tools you and your students will use again and again.

BONUS: Teaching Tips by Harvey “Smokey” Daniels, Carol Jago, and Penny Kittle
