Product Description
Have you ever assigned in-class writing and just when you're absorbed helping one student get started, five students interrupt with "Mrs. A! I can't remember what you said about how to write a hook!" or "Mrs. A! What's another word for..." or the dreaded, "Mrs. A! What words do I use to describe tone?" Alleviate student helplessness and foster independence with The Handy Handbook!

This MEGA student guide includes step-by-step, visually pleasing writing guides and so much more to help students with literary analysis, argumentative writing, and research. In addition, this handbook frees up the teacher by providing reference material that can be utilized at any time.

Suggestions: I like to print out 30-35 copies (front/back) and bind them in report covers. Then I plop them under each desk in my room for easy student access. I also put a copy in the About section of my Google Classroom for students to reference when they are writing at home.
