FSS Spain Trip - March break 2009 C. Macdonald
Here's a fun link for those who want to improve their vocabulary while donating food to those in need. Have fun!
(Remember to investigate the various subjects/categories offered on free rice. There's more than just English vocabulary!)
Here's a reading list for those who have been asking about 'literary works'. It does not supply a list of titles sufficient for a complete or comprehensive journey through the forest of English literature at a secondary school level of reading. Only individual readers can decide whether a book is to their liking or not - but remember, personal taste alone
does not determine the quality of a story/book, only its appeal or lack thereof. http://www.phschool.com/curriculum_support/reading_list/high_school.html
Here's a very useful website for those wishing to improve their writing skills. You can create a student account (free) and take tutorials to help improve your syntax, grammar and diction skills. A useful on-line reference for all questions about the mechanical elements of writing.
. Diana Hacker's reference books are worth purchasing, if you are serious about improving your writing skills.
Visit this site for help in connection with a variety of common problems in written English. There is information about commonly confused words
, contractions, grammar
and sentence composition
etc. You can also learn about some of those pesky literary devices
here. Investigate the Styles and Figures of Speech
tab on the toolbar. It's worth a visit! http://grammar.about.com
