* Outdated:1 (out of 7) chapters is completely useless. It touts a website that no longer exists.
* Non-reproducible: The book's physical size is much smaller than 8x11. Even though it states that some of the pages may be copied, nothing has been formatted to be copier-friendly. So the average teacher is going to be stuck re-typing all of the handy rubrics.
* Cluttering the useful tips are many personal vignettes which do not serve much purpose. None were illuminating or useful and instead distracted me from being able to find the truly beneficial advice.
My recommendation: It is SO tempting to believe in the idea of a remedy for the (seemingly endless) correcting English teachers are faced with. This resource offers a few tips that could be summed up into a brochure or pamphlet.

This book is basically common sense. I was hoping to gain some kind of hidden insight, but it's basically what they tell you in school; don't read to edit, read and make comments.Published on July 26, 2012 by SnowWhite86
