Editorial Reviews

In spite of-or perhaps because of-the speed and frequency at which we communicate today, good letter-writing, public-speaking, and essay-writing skills are essential. The creators of these books from the oFranklin Watts Prepo series offer detailed reads on how to make the most of different types of presentations. Extraordinary Oral Presentations allays the fears of public speaking with tips on how to research, involving the audience, and hitting the points a teacher looks for in a presentation (voice articulation, organization, etc.). Extraordinary Essays offers hints on how to write different types of essays and advice that applies to all nonfiction writing, including proving the thesis and how to revise. Extraordinary E-mails, Letters, and RTsumTs is especially helpful for teens looking to enter the workforce, as it builds a rTsumT step-by-step, shows examples of different types of business letters, and addresses basic and not-so-basic 'netiquette. The only major flaw in this book is that the section on e-mails neglects to mention the importance of an e-mail address that is appropriate for job searching. All three books are laid out clearly and attractively, using bulleted lists, sample writings, and tables comparing examples of outstanding versus dull writing. The language is easy to follow, and the graphics and coloring enhances the books' readability. Print and Web resources are listed and highlighted in their appropriate sections. School libraries will find these books useful. (F.W.Prep). VOYA CODES: 4Q 3P M J S (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses; Will appeal with pushing; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2005, Franklin Watts, 128p.; Index. Illus. Further Reading., PLB . Ages 11 to 18.
—Carlisle Kraft Webber
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Following an explanation of why these tasks are important, each book has easy-to-read chapters and text boxes. Extras within the texts include "Brain Jam" (activities to try), "Project Jump Start," "Tip File" (suggestions and hints), "Resources," and "Ordinary/Extraordinary" (examples to show how to improve a writing sample). Peppered throughout are humorous cartoon illustrations featuring a cow wearing a letter sweater from F. W. Prep. The only real disappointment is the brevity of the section on r sum s and the inclusion of only one sample. Most of the other topics have sufficient examples. These books provide good, practical ideas for students who are having difficulty understanding how to begin a writing assignment or how to prepare an oral presentation.-Linda Wadleigh, Haymon-Morris Middle School, Winder, GA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
