NONFICTION FOR HIGH SCHOOL
A Sentence-Composing Approach
By Don and Jenny Killgallon. Help students become better writers and readers of nonfiction by modeling the sentence structures of well-known authors. Activities offer varied practice in building better sentences and paragraphs, including learning the meanings of words in the context of nonfiction selections, promoting deep reading skills; learning and applying valuable tools for writing—the identifier, the describer and the elaborator—for variety in sentence structure; and imitating the sentence and paragraph structure of mentor authors from a wide variety of short nonfiction pieces. A companion teacher’s booklet is available for free download online. Grades 9–12. 243 pages. Heinemann. ©2015.
