Just Write, Book 3, Student Edition


Book 3 builds on the skills and features of the earlier books in the Just Write series, while introducing students to the four main types of writing - narrative, descriptive, expository, and persuasive - providing samples of each, and allowing students to experiment with different forms of each writing style. This book also raises awareness of the author's audience and purpose by posing the question, Why write? Single- and multi paragraph construction is also presented through creative and enjoyable writing activities and reinforced through reading response exercises and editing checklists that guide writers toward making reading-writing connections. Unobtrusive resource materials for review of basic skills are also provided at the back of the book.

Skills addressed include kinds of writing (narrative, descriptive, expository, persuasive), reasons for writing (audience and purpose), review of story elements (setting, character, plot), fiction, nonfiction, personal narratives, poetry, word choice: adjectives and adverbs, similes and metaphors, sequence and chronological order, step-by-step processes, summary writing, single and multi paragraph writing, transitions, persuasive letters, facts and opinions.

About Just Write: Help students become confident, expressive writers. This classroom-tested resource guides students through the writing process from initial idea to final edited and published narrative.
