"Love the Daily Dazzle materials! I have used them for years now and there is nothing better for language arts. This year I purchased the writing materials, Creative Writing, Expository Writing, and The book on How to Really Teach Writing and they are just amazing. I will not teach without them!" -- Jackie Knupp Johnson, Alaska State Teacher of the Year, 2010
