Description

Product Description

"This series goes to higher ground by zooming in on authors'' paragraphs through the sentence-composing approach. Throughout, emphasis is on elaboration-perhaps the biggest area for improvement in students'' writing." Don and Jenny Killgallon

Following the success of their Sentence-Composing series and their Grammar: A Sentence-Composing Approach series, Don and Jenny Killgallon present a new series.

Paragraphs for High School: A Sentence-Composing Approach gives students new tools to write mature and varied sentences through imitating models by authors like John Steinbeck, Harper Lee, Maya Angelou, J.D. Salinger, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, and many others. Now, in this worktext, the Killgallons take the approach a step further by teaching students tools authors use to build paragraphs.

Using four power tools for building better sentences-the identifier, the elaborator, the describer, and the combo-and five techniques for building better paragraphs-unscrambling, imitating, assembling, combining, and expanding-students achieve a goal of good writing: elaboration.

Through the activities in this worktext, students--

  • learn, practice, and use tools that foster elaboration in paragraphs;
  • imitate how their favorite authors build sentences and paragraphs;
  • learn new punctuation marks to expand the way ideas can be expressed.

With recognizable authors as their mentors, students build confidence as their writing becomes more meaningful and masterful.

Teacher''s Booklet -- guidance for teaching with this particular student worktext, including pacing suggestions and answer key

I have just started High School. I liked the book, but sometimes it was hard to understand what it was saying: to follow the directions. It wants you to add a lot of details in your writing and sometimes I couldn''t think of any. Also, it promised answers or examples so we could see what others had done with the examples, but there were only examples at the beginning of each exercise, not any sample answers on the exercises we were working.

My kids use the approach in this book to learn writing sentences and paragraphs. They start to pay attention to patterns in books they read and naturally write sentences that model after their favorite authors. This is how we used to learn writing, by reading and modeling after great writers. This book makes it more systematic and transparent process for children.

My sixteen year old niece/nephew have had very little high quality English instruction at their local high school (short staffed), and having the kids make their way through this book summer (along with other Killgallon books) has greatly improved their ability to write well. I teach at a full-time at a university in Minnesota, and I plan on making students who struggle with writing in my psychology courses aware of the Killgallon workbooks.

I was tired of the same old approach to grammar. I''ve used both this text and Killgallon''s sentence approach. Effective and engaging!
