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 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. Grades 5-12
