Product Description

Captivate readers, ace writing tests, and express yourself clearly. Marko's Writer's Toolbox, packed with easy-to-implement strategies, will take your writing from mediocre to magnificent. Whether you're writing stories, essays, or other assignments, Marko gives you proven strategies for getting remarkable results. This is the fun way to sharpen your skills.

Listen to Marko the Pencil as he helps his friend brainstorm ideas for a writing assignment. Then jot down ideas for your own paper and experiment with various hooks after seeing examples. Once you have an outline or draft, view the chapters on personification or dialog. Pause the video and take time to incorporate literary devices in your own work.

This video uses a narrative essay as an example, but the tools demonstrated can also be used for persuasive and expository writing. While the cute animation and jokes make the program kid-friendly, the valuable information will help writers of any age, even high school and college. The bonus section shows how to proofread work and gives tips for multiple-choice writing tests.

Review

The DVD had excellent writing strategies that really went with what my youngster was working on at the time. It helped him to know where to begin. I also like the fact that the poster can be printed. I intend to print these as reminders for when he is working on his homework. The ability to choose one segment is great as well.--J. Seward
