Teach your child to write good English is the essential guide for all students wanting to develop their literacy skills and improve their grades in English assignments and examinations.
Book 1: Creative Story Writing guides the student through the story writing process, as if they had a tutor by their side. This book is designed to help the child think up ideas, providing starting points and guidelines on structuring and organizing their writing. Creative Story Writing teaches the rudiments of story writing. It teaches the child to plan stories with an introduction, building up events to create suspense in the middle paragraph and winding up the plot with a good ending. There is emphasis on building up characters and settings.
Book 2: Learning Persuasive Writing and Argument will enable the student to practice different aspects of writing: letters, leaflets, brochures and newspaper articles for example. The book also sets out how to write a well-balanced argument. It teaches the pupil how to structure their writing, putting forward a point of view, backing it up with convincing evidence, building up a relevant counter argument and knocking it down, as well as, putting forward their own comments and opinions. It focuses on discursive writing enabling the pupil to examine points for and against in a variety of subjects suitable for older children and teenage readers, healthy eating, fashion, social issues and many more. It includes a lively collection of writings, poems and a play to inspire the pupil. These are designed as starting points, ideal for the pupil who finds it difficult to think up ideas for writing, challenging them to recreate their own persuasive pieces.
