Titles Give Help to Writing Students
Lawrence Productions has released two new products designed to help literature and writing students. The first product, The Literature Survival Series: Writing About Literature, includes extensive information that helps learners -- from middle school to adult ages -- write journals, papers and book reports. The software gives students full writing-process options plus choice of fonts, sizes, styles. A journal feature lets them track subjects and thoughts they may want to include in papers.
Software is available for many great literary works including Julius Caesar, Hard Times, Robinson Crus'e, The Grapes of Wrath and many more.
Young Writer's Workshop, the other release, is a young-adult literature companion guide that helps students in grades 3 through 7 think about plot, quotations and notations, keeping a journal, and other techniques. It is available for novels such as Sounder, James and the Giant Peach, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, among others. Lawrence Productions, Galesburg, MI, (800) 421-4157, www.lpi.com. MD
