General Description

In How to Write a Sentence, professor Stanley Fish guides readers through the construction and appreciation of great writing. Both fundamental and nuanced, How to Write coaches you to write excellent sentences, and trains you to notice and understand when other authors strike gold as well.

As Challenge A students begin to outline and write papers, How to Write a Sentence is a valuable tool for parents. Students learn the mechanics of writing, and How to Write refreshes the “big picture” in parents’ minds, preparing them to nurture the budding communicators in their students.
