How to write what you want to say: a guide for high school students who know what they want to say but can’t find the words provides parents, teachers and students with a unique tool for improving writing and suits students from the middle years of schooling to college undergraduates.
Students who struggle with putting their ideas into writing need the language that mature writers use. This book provides that language in the form of sentence starters and linking words and phrases. Language and examples are organized by academic skills, including analyzing, arguing or persuading, comparing, explaining, inferring and evaluating.
Other helpful writing tips are also incorporated, such as avoiding the use of “said” or “and then,” as well as a modality table.
