Feedback from K-12 and college educators on the educational uses and benefits of Giving Back with students and people of all ages for lessons about philanthropy, social justice, writing, etc. is always welcome, like here and here. The note below is from a recent email from an associate dean at a university in New York.
Hi Valaida . . . I wanted to tell you that your book (which I am now about half-way through) struck the interest of my partner, as she is currently teaching a college course about different ways to do narrative, and your book tells stories so beautifully. She is going to bring the book to her class for her students to share and consider, because you tell stories in a very different way than, say, a novel or a comic book. I thought you would enjoy knowing that. Yours, Phil
Yes, this is so good to know. And I expect to stay posted on how it goes. — VF
