A Step-By-Step Guide to Personal Writing
Like other titles in this exciting series, this book uses clear language, text examples, and graphic organizers to help young writers explore several different types of personal writing. Suggested exercises help students find their authors' voice and gather ideas as they decide which type of personal writing is most expressive to them. Traditional writing techniques are offered along with suggestions on how to deconstruct writing and reorganize it by changing the chronology of the story, stretching the moment of climax, or using literary devices to build interest.
