Comprehensive Composition

Front Cover
Design-A-Study, Dec 11, 2000 - English language - 124 pages
Just one volume covers grades K-12. The outlined teaching strategy encourages better writing through editing, allowing students to develop at their own pace, improving with each practice. Boredom is eliminated by choosing the type of composition and an appealing topic from among those suggested to suit the student's needs and interests. Topics include: paragraphs, essays, reports, outlines, biographies, narratives, letters, and short stories; persuasive, descriptive, expository and creative writing; choosing and narrowing a topic; content and structure skills; mechanics; and sample lessons. Use alone (it has everything you need) or as a reference.

This book has been a Godsend! My son is now learning the nuts and bolts of expository writing willingly. We choose a topic he is interested in and away he goes. After trying many others this is the one book that works for us all. Read full review
