Random Thoughts

Sigmund uploads his manuscripts for your students to get sneak peeks and send him feedback. Later, when the story is published, they’ll see where he was able to use their suggestions. More importantly, teachers can use the Work-In-Progress to emphasize to students the importance of second and third drafts, and to show students that all writers make mistakes that need polishing.
