Shows students “What’s the point?” of improving writing skills

Writing for Life: Sentences and Paragraphs is part of a two-book series that helps students understand the importance of strong writing skills and motivates them to become better writers. Students are encouraged to take charge of their own learning, and to transfer the strategies they currently apply to reading visuals to reading and writing text. The Third Edition offers high-interest topics, meaningful visuals, clear learning objectives, a wealth of examples, and ample opportunities for students to exercise their own writing skills.

Acclaimed textbook author D.J. Henry is a veteran teacher with over 25 years of community college experience and is a former developmental education student herself.


Over the course of her teaching career, she has served on several federally funded grants designed to infuse teaching and learning with sound pedagogies and technological support. Her extensive experience in the standardized testing of literacy competencies includes working with the State of Florida from 1982 to 2002 as an item writer, rubric writer, and reader for the College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST) and the State Developmental Reading and Writing Exit Exam.
