Five self-contained units guide students step by step through the writing process

By Jay Amberg and Mark Larson. This handbook guides students step by step through the writing process in five self-contained units, three on narrative writing, one on short-story writing, and one on poetry. Throughout the book examples of both professional and student writing serve as models. Frequent peer-response activities help students to improve their drafts as well as learn from the styles and approaches of others. Students are encouraged to keep a journal as a means of discovering their own voices and developing new material; an extensive list of journal topics is provided. A section on style and usage to aid in proofreading is also included. Grades 7–12. Index. Good Year. 143 pages.
