Anyone Can Homeschool: How to Find What Works for You, by Terry Dorian, Ph.D. and Zan Peters Tyler
(This happens to be a quote from the Bible to bring home the point of the preceding paragraphs, technically, it’s only two complete sentences, but that was the end of the chapter.)
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus; who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.
These things speak and exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no one disregard you. (Titus 2:11-15)

Nonfiction Craft Lessons: Teaching Information Writing K-8, by Joann Portalupi & Ralph Fletcher
This is from the Appendix, which is a sample of informational writing.
There are many pieces to help you. Each army has a queen, two rooks, two bishops, two knights, and eight pawns. Learning how to move these pieces can be challenging.
Can you tell what the student was writing about? Okay, that’s it for my tags. Now I need to tag 5 people. Mind you, I should be tagging 15, but I’m going to stick with the 5. And the people I tag only need to do it once, not three times (from my tag anyway).
And, if any of them aren’t into tags, that’s fine with me. (Except, of course, Aric and Arianna). And if you’ve already done this tag (I didn’t check), you don’t have to do it either.
