Brand new from the creators of BrainQuest, the BIG FAT NOTEBOOK™ series is like borrowing the notes from the smartest kid in every middle school subject. The books feature critical ideas highlighted in neon colors, definitions explained, doodles to illuminate tricky concepts, mnemonics for memorable shortcuts, and quizzes to recap it all.
We’ll be excerpting examples from each of the subject areas—Math, Science, English/Language Arts, World History, US History—for five weeks. (See our other excerpts for #BigFatMath and #BigFatAmericanHistory.) This week, we crack open English Language Arts.
