High School – Adults
The Cooper Hill Stylebook 3rd Edition is a practical how-to American language sourcebook, perfect for high school and university students It’s available in ePub and Kindle digital formats and costs just $14.95 – a GREAT price for a writing manual that gets a 5 star rating on Amazon.
The sourcebook contains a specific and extensive index (really, you’ll be amazed at everything that is covered!), a Quick Key, great instructional info, and a Correction Key:
- The Quick Key in the Stylebook lists by abbreviation the most common errors of student writers and is hyperlinked to directions on how to correct the error.
- Each chapter of the Stylebook opens with a FAQ that defines a writing error in clear, student-tested language. This is followed by –
- Examples of the problem and an explanation of each example
- Exercises dealing with the error
- Hyperlinked answers that give instant feedback
- An explanation of why the answers are reasonable
- The Correction Key lists the errors by name and chapter number, and allows students to
- Hyperlink to the chapter where they will discover the problem, as well as an explanation
- Apply a step-by-step correction
- So, this is the great part – when your student makes a writing error, all you do is jot down the name of the error and/or the chapter number where it’s explained. One click then takes your student directly to the explanation of the problem. It’s quick, easy, and effective.What I like about this resource –
- It is SO thorough! 827 pages of important/useful information! This includes 1,000 practice exercises with answers and explanations.
- It helps turn students into independent learners/self-teachers
- It helps turns novices into polished writers
- It’s helpful in studying for the SAT and ACT
- As a teacher, your memory will be refreshed, especially if you’re like me and you know what does and doesn’t sound right, but you’ve totally forgotten the definition of a past participle.
- As a teacher, it cuts your correcting time in half (maybe more?)
- It can be used on a computer or a tablet
- It’s certainly affordable – just $14.95 PLUS additional Bonus Bank of tests and quizzes is available for free to individual homeschooling parents.
