Description & Features

This 88-page book teaches students techniques to strengthen their writing.

In order to express thoughts clearly and precisely to make writing come alive, the students will:

  • Use vivid verbs, specific nouns, and strong adjectives
  • Spot unnecessary adjectives and adverbs
  • Recognize and correct pronoun antecedent confusion
  • Use the active voice rather than the passive voice
  • Be careful of qualifiers
  • Correct issues with point of view
  • Show, not tell
  • Use sensory details

 To write more interesting sentences that make writing flow in a logical manner, the students will:

  • Vary sentence types: simple, compound, and complex
  • Vary sentence beginnings
  • Use effective transition words and phrases
  • Use appositives to add meaning to sentences

 To make writing more appealing to readers, students will use the following literary devices:

  • Similes
  • Metaphors
  • Hyperbole
  • Alliteration
  • Repetition
  • Personification
  • Anthropomorphism
  • Onomatopoeia
