The how to write book : a step-by-step guide to writing friendly letters and business letters, book reports, formal reports, essays, poetry and short stories by Ellen Hajek( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the essentials of good writing in an easy-to-follow 4-part process. The first step discussed in the book, "Using Your Noodle," guides the student through the preparatory thinking process (audience awareness, brainstorming, grouping thoughts). The second step, "Following a Format," presents the challenge of writing for a special purpose (book reports and news reports). The third step discussed in the book, "Writing a Formal Report," moves the student from gathering information through outlining, writing a "grabber" title, arranging topics, listing sources, and proofreading. The last step, "Making Your Writing Sparkle," presents the finishing touches that make writing truly effective (using specific nouns, descriptive verbs, and active and passive voice, using effective modifiers, combining sentences, and making transitions). Each unit in the book includes a model for the student to follow, practice exercises, a writing assignment, and a review as well as a "Just for Fun" activity. A list of six supplementary activities and answers to exercises are attached. (Rs)
