The Excel Writers Handbook is a comprehensive guide to improving students writing. It contains numerous explanations and examples for the practice of structured writing and will prove valuable to the following groups of students:
- students in Years 5-8 requiring a comprehensive coverage of writing skills and practical activities
- students from a non-English speaking background who would benefit from a comprehensive course in writing skills
Each section in the book (see contents listing below) consists of introductory explanatory material, examples and activities related to each chapter topic
The main focus of each section is on providing a sound base for developing writing skills by the study of various explanations and examples. The remainder of each chapter provides structured activities. These structured activities, graduated in complexity, provide opportunities for students to practise the many aspects of writing and construction.
