Writing Series Sharpens Essential Skills

Students who write well are much more likely to be academically successful than those with average writing ability. The question is how can students reach higher writing achievement levels. Generally, they expand their writing repertoire through continuous experience, useful exercises such as those found in the Owl Purdue Online Writing Lab, and targeted feedback.

Enslow Publishers' new "Sharpen Your Writing Skills" series offers a tool box for students looking to improve their written work. Each 64-page title focuses on an academically significant area, such as reports, essays, and debates. The books provide guidance and examples in clear, age-appropriate language. Their positive, upbeat tone and playful illustrations help encourage and engage students in the various writing activities the books present. The books also offer strong value, as their content and purpose are consistent with 21st Century classroom needs.

Each title is available in paperback for $7.95; library-bound editions are also available to schools and libraries for $20.95 per copy (a 25% discount from Enslow's list price).
