Overview

Drawing from his well known methodology, Bill Strong presents a broader application of sentence combining as the basis for teaching writing with the WRITER'S TOOLBOX: A SENTENCE COMBINING WORKSHOP. This exciting new developmental writing text uses a writing process framework and stresses a collaborative approach, while providing students with skill instruction through extensive sentence combining activities. In short, the WRITER'S TOOLBOX is the only text at the developmental level to teach grammar, usage, and punctuation skills in the context of a conceptual framework - one that covers generating and planning, freewriting and drafting, shaping and revising, and editing and proofreading.
