Product Description:

The original Elements of Style has been used to improve, strengthen and hone writing style since 1920. This version adds a component to practice skills. Improve your style by examining and imitating others’ writing, practicing specific elements in smaller and then in larger, but manageable assignments. Grammatical elements play a role: punctuation, possessive, clauses, and the like. Practice how to write paragraphs and connect them, learn how to omit the unnecessary, effectively use passive or active voice, and more. All the while, use examples from the masters: Franklin, Twain, Austen, Shakespeare, and others. Some of the original Elements has been omitted (such as form, misused words, etc., that have modernized), but you will have opportunity to practice the same basic principles—so the original is not necessary. Includes a Style Checklist to use in every assignment, and supporting materials for a few tasks. Tasks are individualized, so no answer key. Consumable, 211, pb. ~ Ruth

Publisher Description:

The Elements of Style Workbook, a stand-alone writing and grammar workbook, honors the original Elements of Style masterpiece by William Strunk, Jr. published in 1920, with relevant updates for modern times. We have adapted Strunk's original Elements of Style to include essential exercises (with answer keys). These exercises help writers gain command of grammar as well as stylistic structures and devices through guided practice.

Category Description for WRITING SKILLS PRACTICE:
