The Most Wonderful Writing Lessons Ever
by Barbara Mariconda

These ready-to-use lessons cover writing from beginning to end: entertaining starters, building suspense, adding detail, main event, story endings, and using dialogue. Inventive activities include analyzing a photo to draw out vivid verbs, and reading Snoozer Sentences to show the need for leads that grab!

A 20-year teaching veteran, Barbara is now the creative director of Empowering Magical Writes, a consulting firm dedicated to the training of teachers in the area of writing.
