Practical tips for strong writing

Explaining the general principles of strong writing and backing up their advice with specific practical tips, two lively hosts instruct a wide mix of culturally diverse teens and preteens. For example, as the program about Writing Effective Paragraphs stresses the general principles of unity and coherence, it goes into detail on how to develop a thesis statement that will be neither too narrow nor too broad, that will be supported by the body of the paragraph, and that will achieve unity by using words that signal transitions. "Ideal instructional viewing…highly recommended," says the Midwest Book Review. Grades 5–9. Closed captioned. Color. Programs: 23 minutes each. Total time: 161 minutes. Schlessinger. ©2006.
