    Suppose your junior or senior high student has been through Level B or C of the Student Writing Intensive (SWI) seminar and has a good understanding of how to write a paragraph using topic and clincher sentences. He may even have a little bit of experience with essay writing but you feel he needs more instruction and practice with essays. This course is for you! Focusing specifically on the structure and content of essay writing, it's an extension and refinement of IEW's Unit VIII (on the formal essay). Utilizing a four-step teaching strategy which includes preliminary instruction, modeling, practice with help, and "on your own" work, this ten-week course by Lesha Myers takes the student step-by-step through the essay-writing process. Teaching units include thesis statements, essay organization, transitions, introductions, and conclusions and end with descriptive and persuasive essay practice. The course book includes student pages with instruction written directly to the student and teacher pages that include helps (grading and schedules) and unit by unit lesson plans.

    Too often, English teachers make the English language more complicated than it needs to be. Not so with the late Prof. William Strunk Jr., who originally authored this work to use with his classes at Cornell University in the early 1900's. Although the original 43-page digest has "swelled" to a whopping 85 pages, the essence of the book remains a strong case for cleanliness, accuracy, and brevity. Think of this as a concise rulebook for English. Rules are given, followed by examples of improper and proper usage. If you could only have one book on language usage, this should be it.

    Another Newbery Award (1994) winner from the author of Number the Stars. A remarkable coming-of-age story about a young man who overcomes his society. Set in a "utopian" or "dystopian" (depending on your point of view!) society which is extremely regulated and controlled, Jonas is selected for the very special job of becoming the Receiver of Memory in this story about a community of the future. When Jonas realizes, however, what has been lost and what the price of conformity is, he makes a daring decision that will forever change his life. Our whole family read and discussed this book, finding it an excellent starting point for frank discussion of individuality and responsibility vs. security and homogeneity. Jonas is chosen to be the Receiver of Memory for his community. As he becomes aware of the choices his world has made, he is faced with a difficult decision.

    What in the world would draw two well-educated doctors to the poverty and extremely primitive conditions of the remote hill country of North Carolina in 1909? It's an important question. A love of the country? A love of the people? A heartfelt desire to leave some little corner of the world a better place after you've walked the roads and paths? A determination to follow God's call? Yes, to all! Miracle in the Hills is the remarkable story of Doctor Sloop and his wife (also a doctor). Actually, I should say stories because the book is packed with stories – of their education, of their meeting, of beginning their life in the hills, of year after year (over forty) among a people made remarkable and memorable by their love for them. The book is also filled with stories of Mrs. Doctor's fights to improve the lives of those people – early child marriages, moonshiners, and increased educational and economic opportunities were all areas she addressed. Mrs. Sloop was named American Mother of the Year in 1951 – a tribute to her many accomplishments among and for the people she loved. 232 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    This memoir by Sam R. Watkins tells of his experience during the American Civil War. Sam joined the Confederate army when he was twenty-one and fought in battles from Shiloh to Nashville. He wrote the memoir twenty years after the war, and it blends the horror of war with a sense of humor that readers will enjoy. It tells of the Confederate common foot soldiers, its commanders, its Yankee enemies, its victories and defeats, and its ultimate surrender in 1865. Considered a classic Civil War memoir, this story of one man's experience in the war will be hard to put down. Very readable and engrossing. 240 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
