The Australian students guide to Writing and Grammar by Claire Duffy provides students information about basic grammar and skills in writing before it delves into how to be a writer who can write creatively, persuasively and analytically.

I loved the nerd corners for the extra fact and the tables filled with accessible information about different types of writing.
This book doesn’t ask the reader to do anything except read the information provided. There are no tasks to complete or quizes to fill in. I think because of this students will return to this book when they are unsure of any aspect of writing and grammar, knowing it is a place they can read, learn and do in their own time.
I know that I will be using this to revisit some of the writing techniques not only in my own writing but in the lessons I teach.
Highly recommended for teachers and students as it fits nicely into a bag, is simple to use and very informative.
