Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
This is an excellent guide for the beginning writer as well as a reference tool for the older student who is an accomplished writer. The authors give students direction in gathering information, including diverse sources such as the library and the Internet. Students are shown how two reports can start with the same idea and be written differently. Students are given instruction in separating fact from fiction, and how to use outlines and tables to organize their writing. Parents who are uncomfortable helping children write reports will welcome this guide. Teachers of composition may want to have one for each of their students. This type of guide has long been popular with students, and this is one of the best I have seen. Previously published as How To Write A Great School Report. 1998 (orig.
Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
With more and more classroom emphasis being placed on a student's ability to write, homework assignments often involve some time writing.

School Library Journal
Gr 4 Up--This revision of James and Barkin's How to Write a Great School Report (Lothrop, 1983) does much more than just emphasize the need to consider the sources for factual information. New and improved, it takes readers, step-by-step, through a typical research paper. Like its predecessor, this edition offers suggestions for choosing a topic, finding facts, using the library, organizing notes, and, finally, putting the report together. New material includes valuable advice on how to conduct searches, cite sources, and validate information found on the Internet. The authors also suggest using e-mail as a resource. They explain how to locate fiction and nonfiction materials in the library, but discuss only Dewey classification. This may be confusing to readers familiar with Library of Congress classification. Other than this small omission, the book is excellent.--Barb Lawler, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA

Super School Reports Tip #5:

When you finish each paragraph, stop to look it over. Did you say what you meant to say? Did you include everything you wanted to include? Is the paragraph clear and understandable? If the answer to any of these questions is no, now is the time to change things. There is nothing wrong with changing what you've written and redoing it to make it better. People who write books and magazine articles do this all the time.
