By Karen Jennings and Mark Pierce. Keep kids involved and enthused about writing with these cleverly designed exercises. Ready-to-use worksheets make it easy to teach comedic writing in lessons that develop language skills and reading comprehension. For example, in the chapter on wordplay, students learn about homonyms, homophones, and malapropisms. While studying the ways in which descriptive language can be used to comedic effect, students employ similes, metaphors, and quotations. In the chapter on personal narratives, they practice brainstorming and prewriting, and in the section on comedic genres, they learn about parodies and anecdotes. Grades 4–6. Answer key. Suggested readings. Illustrated. 8½" x 11". Good Year. 58 pages. ©1997.
