More than 60 similarly creative writing exercises, each comprising a teacher page and a reproducible student handout, build skills in nonfiction (such as personal narrative, biography, opinion, informational writing, and business letters), fiction (including descriptive writing, character, point of view, the narrator’s voice, and flashbacks and foreshadowing), and poetry. The book includes indexes of authors cited and skills addressed. Grades 6–8. Illustrated. 8½" x 11". Good Year. 153 pages. ©1999.
