What You See Is What You Write brings an innovative new approach to teaching writing to students. The text recognizes that students will be motivated to write better if they are interested in what they are writing about. Only through constant writing practice will students build confidence in their writing, and in the end become better writers. To that end, the authors strive to leverage today’s student’s media and pop culture literacy to engage and inspire good writing.
