We are using the "parvum opus" of Strunk and White: The Elements of Style.
We are also loving " Eats,Shoots & Leaves." There are picture books that are priceless byLynnTruss that even my high school students loved. Laughed. When a writing ends in laughter, it reminds me of

Good teaching on both sites. Good books
