Becoming Sentence Acrobats - Tools for Composing Effective Sentences

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do your students use repetitive sentence structures because they don’t have the tools to make their sentences more interesting and lively? Help your students understand that adding sentence variety to writing will give it life and rhythm, and learn how to teach sentence fluency in a way that transfers into student writing. This session will focus on the following areas: using strong verbs to breathe life into sentences; varying sentence beginnings; varying sentence structures; and how to actively engage students in learning sentence composing tools. This session is suitable for Gr. 4- 12 teachers.
