The Power in Your Hands teaches writing to teens in a relaxed way. The instruction and examples are written directly to the student, followed by places to complete the exercises right in the book. Students learn about persuasive writing, a comparison-and-contrast essay, a biography, a literary analysis, a research paper with MLA documentation, and more.
Written by the same author who wrote Jump In, our popular middle school composition course, The Power in Your Hands is the natural next step for those who value college-preparatory material presented in incremental steps with a conversational tone.
With over 100 daily lessons and complete instructions for 21 essays and reports, this is an engaging course students will enjoy–or at least not dread. And, more good news: the course is self-guided. It almost teaches itself. Really. Perfect for your reluctant or skilled writer!
