Salinger, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, and many others. Now, in this worktext, the Killgallons take the approach a step further by teaching students tool authors use to build paragraphs.Using four power tools for building better sentences-the identifier, the elaborator, the describer, and the combo-and five techniques for building better paragraphs-unscrambling paragraphs, imitating paragraphs, assembling paragraphs, combining sentences within paragraphs, and expanding paragraphs-students achieve a goal of good writing: elaboration. Through the activities in this book, students:learn, practice, and use tools that foster elaboration in paragraphsimitate how their favorite authors build sentences and paragraphslearn new punctuation marks to expand the way ideas can be expressed in sentences.With recognizable authors as their mentors, students build confidence as their writing becomes more meaningful and masterful.
