I've used a lot of writing products for our children, and for high school, this seems to work very well, especially to get them to THINK about their writing, ORGANIZE (he is big on the 5 paragraph essay) and churn it out in a timely manner. Excellent practice for the SAT 25 minute essay. To help the teacher, he has a list of over 150 essay topics in the back of the book; something for almost everyone, even the most reluctant freshman writer (though I would use this more toward the year before your student takes the SAT--probably sophomore and work on basic writing skills freshman year). Better than most I've seen or used; not really a remedial handbook though, he assumes you can write an essay, he is helping you to write a very good one.

I think this book fills a long-overdue need. Students need to think about writing. The exercises and examples in this book help students realize that they are learning about themselves and how they feel about issues while they write. School has led some students to believe that we write to tell the teacher what she wants to hear. That is not the purpose of writing for the SAT or adult life, and this book helps students make that transition in their approach to writing.

This book sets out the logical path to a successful essay. The examples are engaging and thought-provoking and make you itch to start writing!

Mr Terego speaks directly to the reader, as if he were sitting across the desk, and his tone is full of encouragement.

By the end of this highly readable book a student will have the knowledge to write a good essay and, more importantly, the confidence to do it well.
