Hi there!

I’m Thomas Crank.

I help teachers improve student writing

—the FUN way!

Make writing class something to look forward to.

You deserve a break.

  • Why put up with the tears every time you ask your student(s) to write?
  • Why make every writing class a battle?
  • Who says you can’t have both fun AND results? 

With the CrankOut Words Plan, students have fun while consistently improving their writing skills.
