For high school students of all abilities, Secret Writing begins with the word game of Hangman and goes on to discuss: grammar and codes; the linguistic structure of secret codes; the five basic conventions of English and how they relate to codes; the surprising sense of nonsense; a brief history of our punctuation; what foreign languages tell us about English; the importance and uses of context; difficult literature (Paradise Lost, Ulysses, and The Canterbury Tales) treated as codes to crack; deciphering contemporary poetry; and much more. Sears also provides 200 thinking and writing exercises designed to engage students creative thinking.
