Useful  Aug 13, 2007
I like the chapter worksheet style. I used this to help my son's writing.
An all-in-one literacy exercise book.  Mar 11, 2004
I love this book for its time saving worksheets. If you can only buy one time saving resource for supporting literacy then this is it. From morphology and syntax to metatheme and macrostructure, this book covers all the skills in accessible worksheets. Each topic has definitions and examples at sentence and text level as appropriate. The lay out of the worksheets is visually attractive with not too much text on one page, use of boxes, tables, diagrams, dot points and checklists to "chunk" the information. Each exercise provides specific instructions and achievable tasks. And it's such good value. I'm a Speech-Language Pathologist using the book in Language therapy with children with Language learning disabilities, but it is accessible enough for a student to use independantly to practice and polish their literacy skills.
Carol Behrman knows her task�  Jan 14, 2004
Ready-to-Use WRITING PROFICIENCY LESSONS AND ACTIVITIES: Eighth Grade Level provides classroom teachers with a wealth of ideas to open creative windows, and enables students to reach beyond where they thought possible. Teachers will delight in the author's detailed lesson plans and practice tests. Activities and techniques designed to promote eighth grade students' writing competencies are appealing and fun.

Elementary school media specialist in Florida

Writing Proficiency is a definite 'ready to use'.  Aug 2, 2003
As a former writing coach in the public school system, I can see the activities would work well at any age. Ms. Behrman has made the activities challenging yet fun, and very user-friendly for the classroom teacher.
