“In his book inspired by Strunk and White’s classic The Elements of Style, Jerry walks teachers and their students through the basics of composing clear and sprightly sentences. The book helps teachers DEMYSTIFY the challenge of building sentences by giving students a place to start and “handholds”, including structure and relevant rules of grammar, for working toward clear and fluent written expression. These are reasons to highly recommend Seven Sentence Building Activities.” ~ Susan Goldsmith PhD, Visiting Scholar, Boston University School of Education
