    A MUST-HAVE Resource for Teens, Adults and Educators

    Ms. Mclean's book, Essays and Term Papers, is the the newest addition to the Homework Helpers series of educational resources. It's an outstanding writing guide for teens and adults from 8th grade through college. Every single type of writing assignment you may ever be asked to write is covered in this easy-to-read book. Each task is broken down into mini "lessons" that can make the most writing-phobic kid feel like they can not only do the assignment, but do it well.
    I have two kids at home. My teen is in a gifted program, but she will tell you that writing does not come naturally to her (she is more the math/science geek). This book is perfect for her, breaking the writing down in a formulaic way that makes her comfortable with the writing process.
    I've also seen the strategies in this book utilized with special needs kids - all with fabulous results.
    Trust me, if you have kids in HS or college, or if you know any, go and get this book! You won't be disappointed.
    And if you are an English or Resource teacher, this is a great addition to your professional library, as well as an excellent resource for your parents! I really can't speak strongly enough about it.

    A Must-Have For All Students

    I cannot stress enough what a fantastic book this is. I'm not sure what I expected--a dry textbook-like foray into the land of the boring, maybe--but this book isn't that at all. This book is accessible, informative, interesting and very, very helpful.

    McLean details the different kinds of essays from basic (even helpful for me as my two fifth-graders are learning about essay writing this year) all the way up to the dreaded research/term paper that sends fourth year university students shaking in their boots. I learned things about the different essay types that I never once was taught, not in high school nor in university. Things I wish I'd been able to learn in such a friendly manner--rather than the fumbling in the dark way.

    Whatever the type of essay you're required to write, McLean teaches you how to brainstorm, research, outline, and write from the rough to the finished draft. She also teaches you how to research and site sources. And as an added bonus, provides tips on avoiding common grammar mistakes.

    HOMEWORK HELPERS: ESSAYS & TERM PAPERS is truly an exceptional resource for all your students. It should have a place on every student's shelf--right next to Webster's Dictionary and Roget's Thesaurus.
