By Jay Amberg and Mark Larson. This handbook guides students step by step through the writing process in five self-contained units, three on narrative writing, one on short-story writing, and one on poetry. Throughout the book examples of both professional and student writing serve as models. Frequent peer-response activities help students to improve their drafts as well as learn from the styles and approaches of others. Students are encouraged to keep a journal as a means of discovering their own voices and developing new material; an extensive list of journal topics is provided. A section on style and usage to aid in proofreading is also included. Grades 7–12. Index. Good Year. 143 pages.
