Synopsis: So many writing and formatting guides are written for adults and are too complex for students. They don't communicate the basics of good writing in a way that kids can easily grasp and integrate into their own writing. The Absolutely Essential Writing Guide offers the perfect solution. Filled with straightforward language, lots of easy-to-understand examples, and straight-to-the-point guidance, this handbook was designed from the ground up to meet the needs of your students.

This fantastic guide covers all of the basics of good writing, including:

  • essential elements of writing and editing;
  • definitions of terms used in prose writing;
  • definitions of types of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry;
  • helpful references;
  • common usage errors and how to avoid them; and
  • information about writing sentences, paragraphs, and essays.
The compact dictionary format makes information easy to find. Reference pages provide quick access to commonly asked questions. From writing strategies, to literary and composition terms, students will find what they need to support their writing in The Absolutely Essential Writing Guide.

This extensive text includes the essential elements of prose and poetry. With definitions and terminology, common errors, sample formats, and helpful guidelines, this book will be a reference that writers will refer to again and again.

For additional guidance in grammar, see The Absolutely Essential Grammar Guide.

Grades 5–12

Review: Prufrock Press has newly published two outstanding "how to" manuals for children seeking to write effectively and correctly. Written by Nancy Atlee and nicely embellished with small illustrations by Mary Lou Johnson, these instructionals include The Absolutely Essential Writing Guide for Kids and The Absolutely Essential Grammar Guide. The first is a basic reference manual introducing children to the writing process, including terminology, formatting, and avoiding common errors. The second is a basic reference manual [that introduces] children to the fundamentals of English grammar, including capitalization, parts of speech, punctuation, and sentences. Whether writing prose or poetry, short stories or novels, essays or research papers, The Absolutely Essential Writing Guide for Kids and The Absolutely Essential Grammar Guide for Kids combine to provide a complete introduction to effective writing and good grammer. Ideal as supplemental classroom materials, these two outstanding titles are especially recommended for home schooling curriculum inclusion as well.
