Death Education in the Writing Classroom is the first book to demonstrate how love and loss can be taught in a college writing class-and the first to describe the week-by-week changes in students' cognitive and affective responses to death. This interdisciplinary book will be of interest to writing teachers, students, clinicians, and bereavement counselors.
