The Writing Book, by Inky Penguin [and] Teacher's Manual.
Intended for elementary level students, this book presents 12 writing ideas and several suggestions on how students can make a book using their writing. Each writing idea is presented with a brief description (addressed to the student), several examples of student writing, and a blank page on which to write. Writing ideas include freewriting, describing, acrostics, haiku, and remembering. Suggestions for making a book include several ideas on how to illustrate written work, and a set of stencils is located on the back cover. A glossary of terms, a list of further books on writing, and a questionnaire for evaluating this book are provided. An accompanying teacher's manual presents guidelines and suggestions for using and extending the ideas outlined in the student's book. Following a brief introduction of general advice to the teacher, several activities and ideas are presented to extend each writing exercise. The manual also includes instructions on how to make hardback books from students' written work. (MM)
