Because the National Day on Writing is so close to Veterans Day, my classes observe this day by writing notes of encouragement and thanks to those who serve our country. Lee College (located in Baytown, Texas) shows its commitment to our veterans through our Veterans Center. Whenever those in the center send care packages to our soldiers, they include the notes that my English Composition I and British Literature students have written. This project not only allows my students to practice their writing, but it also proves to them that writing matters beyond the classroom. Perhaps even a small service learning project can a difference to someone you don't even know.
