Product Description:

Publisher Description:

The first step of writing a book report is simple--read the book! However, careful reading and note taking can make the writing process easier. Readers learn these skills and more included in the Common Core, such as effective description and ability to recall and write a sequence of events. Whether reporting on fiction or nonfiction, understanding the writing process of book reports is important. Fact boxes offer helpful writing tips as readers move through their writing project from beginning to end. Outlining, transitions, and good grammar are emphasized throughout the main content.

Category Description for Write Right!:

It's one thing to assign a book report or opinion paper to your child, but quite another to explain the process he'll go through. I really like this series of books because they take each part of the writing process and break it down into clear, easy to follow steps. Written to be read by the student, they make a nebulous, potentially overwhelming assignment less complicated with clear, illustrated explanations not just of what to do, but how to do it. Each focuses on a specific, common type of writing and shows the student the entire process from selecting a topic to revising the final draft, along with excerpts and, in some books, the entire finished assignment. There's a glossary at the end of each book and, though I doubt the endeavor could be made much clearer, A For More Information page which suggests additional resources. Pb, 24 pgs each.




Category Description for WRITING INSTRUCTION RESOURCES:

These materials are resources for the teacher or student, offering instruction and ideas for teaching children to write but not providing "in-book" assignments/practice.

I have a middle school son with special needs. It is important for him to learn skills in a compartmentalized fashion. I believe this series of books will help him learn writing memorably while also allowing him to feel accomplished when he moves on to the next book.

It’s ok
I thought there would be much more to this book. I didn’t expect a whole lot for the price point. It basically just tells you the parts of a book report and not how to write one.
