Tutoring Writing Lesson

Posted on 23rd September 2009 in Tampa English Tutor

I tutored one of my favorite New Tampa writing students today. He is a wonderfully talented student. We’ve been working in a book that I found at the Friends of the Library bookstore at the Temple Terrace library.

It’s called The Lively Art of Writing. So far, it’s been a reasonably good textbook, although it isn’t a new one. The problems that students face in writing good essays have not changed much since the text was published in 1969.

I’ve struggled to find a really good writing book for gifted students in the middle grades. I’m not sure that I have the best one. Is anyone using a textbook to teach or tutor writing to gifted 7th and 8th graders that is especially good?
