Teacher Manual Only – to be used in conjunction with Editing and Revising Student Books or CD. This invaluable resource covers a wide range of written communication skills that affect the fluency of a piece of writing. These include: grammar and mechanics, revising and editing skills. It was designed to address the skills that are often absent from reading programs and are not easily mastered through oral exercises alone. This book introduce all of the grammar/mechanics skills – punctuation, capitalization, sentence structure and sentence variety, parts of speech, as well as lesson plans. Each skill is presented in isolation with creative writing connections in which students apply the skill to authentic writing experiences. Also included is a valuable assessment piece. The multiple choice format, common on state mastery tests, is set up thematically so that teachers can use the assessments throughout the school year.
