Today is National Day on Writing

To draw attention to the remarkable variety of writing Americans engage in and to help make writers from all walks of life aware of their craft, the National Council of Teachers of English has established October 20, as the National Day on Writing.
To celebrate NCTE encourages participants to the visit National Gallery of Writing where they can read published work, contribute their own writing, start a local gallery, or search galleries.

NCTE provides a list of wonderful classroom activities, Web sites, and related resouces available here.

Thinking of writing a book or maybe starting your memoirs? Why not start today?

Need a book to help your students with their writing? Check out our Ace Your Creative Writing Project or Ace Your Research Paper or Ace Your Writing Assignment titles.

Happy National Day on Writing!

Ace Your Human Biology Science Project NSTA REVIEW

NSTA just reviewed Enslow's latest title in the series, Ace Your Biology Science Project. The title is Ace Your Human Biology Science Project by Robert Gardner and Barbara Gardner Conklin

"...I was pleasantly surprised and impressed by the books' exciting
delivery of the content. This all-inclusive idea book provides both factual
information and great ideas centered on the human biology theme. It's
designed in such a way that all but guarantees success in the middle school
students' pursuit of inquiry-based projects....The book is jam-packed with so
much terrific information that there is something in here sure to
capture each student’s interest. I was most impressed by the
simplicity with which difficult ideas like genetics and chromosomes were
explained using words and maps like family trees and Punnett square."
