    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 1900s. 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.

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

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

    This workbook is very straightforward in its presentation of this writing style, but it is very clear, concise, and helpful. If my recommendation isn't enough, then maybe you'd be interested to know that this is also one of Cathy Duffy's 100 Top Picks. 160 pgs, pb. - elise

    "When I left my city home to be a teacher at a backwoods mission, I dreamed of adventure. I wasnt ready for the real challenges of life in these mountains. Id have given up, if not for the children. I came to Cutter Gap to teach, but they show me everyday Im here to learn." Christy Huddleston leaves her life of privilege and ease at the young age of 19 to teach at a school in the Smoky Mountains. Her faith is severely tested by her pupils, the love of two men, and the curious customs of the wild mountain people. However, as she braves her primitive mountain surroundings, she grows to love these people and the simple life that she leads in the heart of Gods country. Christy touches the heart as it is based on the life of author Catherine Marshalls mother. This moving story is beautifully told and it will appeal to readers of all ages. ~ elise
