How to Write a Composition
This book takes the student from an understanding of the writing form to the actual product providing help in selecting topics and organizing thoughts along the way. Several pages are spent at the beginning of the unit discussing what a composition is and the elements of a good composition. During the course, students will write various types of expository, narrative, and descriptive compositions. The last section of the book is on "Using the Writing Process" and contains a very good presentation of the writing process for reference during the course.
These materials provide practice for developing individual skills necessary to writing rather than focusing on the work as a whole.
