Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-10A breezy, yet thorough book on writing reports. Sullivan and Sernoff take students step by step through the process, from selecting a topic to researching, note-taking, interviewing, writing and editing, using graphics, and compiling a bibliography. Chapters are clear, short, readable, and sprinkled with examples of interest to teens. Extensive appendixes cover sources of information such as general encyclopedias, periodical indexes, handbooks and manuals, association indexes, government publications, electronic databases, etc. Equally copious are the sample bibliographic entries and footnotes detailing almost every conceivable possibilitymultiple authors or editors, unsigned articles, electronic sources, series, periodicals, and interviews. The final appendix provides parts of a sample report, adding to the concrete examples in the text. This book is not as wordy as L. Sue Baugh's How to Write Term Papers and Reports (NTC, 1991), Nancy Everhart's How to Write a Term Paper (Watts, 1994), James D. Lester's The Research Paper Handbook (GoodYear Bks., 1991), or Sue Brandt's How to Write a Report (Watts, 1986; o.p.), but it covers the same points. It is also much easier on the eye than any of those titles. Readers will appreciate the clarity and brevity of the writing, as well as the excellent organization.Peg Glisson, Dewitt Road School, Webster, NY
