The book contains specific directions and tips on how to write better sentences, paragraphs, essays, literary analysis and business letters. There are also sections on how to use the internet, math terms, punctution, the US Constitution, the US Bill of Rights, grammer, sceintific terms, geography and even some US history. It is the best book my children have used through their years of school. Your childrens writing skills will improve and so will their grades. The student receipent may not think at first it was a great gift, but will realize the book will help them in the future !
