Cross Training

Potty training.

Bring out miniature commode, sit your child on it, give lots and lots of encouragement. You're getting so big and grown up! More encouragement, more encouragement, and fecundity!

Stand up and look what you made! Look at that big doody!

This is the most beautiful doody in the world. You made that!

I reiterate my original statement, and for the record. This is beautiful doody, and you made it! Bigger doodies lie in your future.

There are times when this is exactly what teaching composition is like.
