"Written by a high school English teacher for his busy fellow teachers, the 82 exercises in this book help students use examples, vivid verbs, concrete nouns, metaphor, personification, allusion, parallelism, alliteration, and sentence variety in their writing. The reproducible worksheets introduce literary devices, provide brief passages by well-known writers for analysis, and challenge students to write creatively in the short assignments."
