A sentence-composing approach gives students new tools to write mature and varied sentences. This method uses a lot of model writing from both classic and contemporary literature to show students how the pieces of the sentence combine to make it really good. Authors include: John Steinbeck, Harper Lee, Maya Angelou, J.D. Salinger, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling and many others. The process is simplified into four "power tools" and five techniques which makes it easy to understand and apply. I think students will enjoy seeing samples of authors they may have read to demonstrate good writing. They are more likely to emulate an author's style and format if they like their stories. It is an approach which sets this book apart from others. I found this to be well organized and easy to follow. 233 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

This student worktext is a self-directing tool for students who wish to craft stronger, better-written sentences. Starting briefly with basic sentence construction (subjects/predicates and fragments), the text then uses example sentences from published authors to teach, by imitation, jobs that sentences accomplish: extending meaning, identifying, describing, elaborating and combining these 4 skills in various ways. Open-ended activities provide students with practice. The provided example sentences are typically pulled from modern authors such as Stephen King, Garrison Keillor, R.K. Rowling, James Joyce and Harper Lee. While not the primary focus, the text also uses a scaffolding technique to help students learn potentially new vocabulary found in these examples.
