Product Description:

Maybe Dave Marks can't grade all our Writing Strands assignments, but his book will help. Common writing problems and how to fix them are discussed. The bulk of the book is devoted to reviewing assignments actually written by students, with commentary about the writing and what steps the teacher should take. How to correct problems like repeating words, "Dick and Jane" writing, ambiguity, tense errors, sentence fragments and run-ons, and a wide variety of other writing weaknesses are addressed. The book first shows a rough draft a student has written and then includes remarks the parent or teacher has made. Both the draft and the remarks are commented on so parents can see how best to evaluate all different types of writing. The book recommends that comments made on student writing be straightforward and to the point. Evaluation is provided for using Writing Strands 2 - 5 for grades 2 - 8, although this book could be used as a teacher resource regardless of the curriculum used.
