I taught a high school writing class once and it was difficult to coax some of the teenagers to share what they were working on.
Gifts helped. One thing I came up with was a honey stick that had a simple address label attached. On the label I printed Proverbs 16:24 "Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones."
Can anyone else submit a quick, inexpensive idea for a writing class incentive?
