EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO ACE ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS IN ONE BIG FAT NOTEBOOK
The Complete Middle School Study Guide
By Jen Haberling. Designed to simulate borrowing notes from the smartest kid in class, this lively and instructive volume helps students focus on the really important ideas that are usually on tests. Key concepts are summarized, the most significant words and terms appear as if they’ve been highlighted with a yellow marker, and amusing doodle-like graphics visually present the big ideas. At the end of each of the book’s 32 chapters, a "Check Your Knowledge" test presents ten short-answer questions (answer keys included). Topics addressed: grammar, language, fiction, nonfiction, and writing. Intended for grades 5–8, but valuable for high school students as well. Illustrated. Workman. 488 pages. ©2016.
