A user-friendly, concept-first approach to Middle School ELA that helps you improve your skills quickly and easily

Must Know Middle School ELA provides a fresh approach to learning. As part of our Must Know series, this book makes sure what you really need to know is clear up-front. Rather than starting with goals to be met, chapters begin by telling you the most important concepts about the topic at hand--and then show you exactly how these concepts help you accomplish your goals.

Written by a veteran educator with decades of experience, Must Know Middle School ELA provides useful examples to help explain and clarify each topic, then follows up with more challenging aspects and exceptions to any rules. Every chapter closes with reinforcing exercises to help you get the practice you need to gain confidence. In the end, Must Know Middle School ELA shows you that understanding the must-know concepts can help you improve your reading and writing skills quickly and painlessly.
