    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.

    If you are looking to develop your expository writing skills, check out thisworkbook. Expository writing exposes, puts forth, explains, reveals, orexhibits in detail about something. This style of writing is perfect to usewhen you want to inform, clarify, or persuade. Honestly, this style of writingis what your child needs to learn for college! It falls perfectly in line withwhat my college professors wanted. Luckily, I had learned this style of writingduring my high school years, so I was well prepared. You'll want to prepareyour child in the same way.

    This book falls naturally into seven sections. You would be hard-pressed totry and do all the sections in one year, as there is so much to cover and thewriting and research process takes time. (Remember, college professors oftengive students a whole semester to work on one very detailed and in-depthpaper.) Section one works on single paragraph formats. Then in section twoyou'll work on the elements of the five paragraph essay and different formatsyou can use. Book reports put the five paragraph formats to use in sectionthree. Section four works on business writing, such as: business letters,letters of complaint, cover letters, political letters, and resume writing. Insection five, you'll work on the principle of condensation as you learn how towrite in various lengths as you reduce, abridge, abbreviate, shorten, cut,compress, compact, or distill your work! Now you are ready to compose a majorpaper and all its components (title page, endnotes, appendix, bibliography,etc), as outlined in section six. Section seven contains all the check sheetsand forms, tests, answer keys, and sample week-by-week schedules to help youorganize deadlines for the longer, more detailed papers.

    This workbook is very straightforward in its presentation of this writingstyle, but it is very clear, concise, and helpful. If my recommendation isn'tenough, then maybe you'd be interested to know that this is also one of CathyDuffy's 100 Top Picks. 160 pgs, pb. - elise
