Liven Up Your Students’ Sentence Writing!: A Bridge to Narrative and Expository Writing

January 19 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

$260
Use research-based methods to teach students the art of writing beautiful sentences and how the grammatical choices they make can impact their readers’ experience. Help students deeply understand what a sentence is (and is not), the major grammatical elements they can choose from when crafting sentences and how to add flair and complexity, while avoiding run-ons and fragments. Hear the latest empirical research on how to teach sentence writing in authentic, embedded ways that will feel natural and uplift overall writing quality. Learn strategies that students can use independently to enhance authentic word choice, as well as sentence expansion, variety, and cohesion (within and across sentences). Also learn how to use sentence combining and artful sentence imitation to enhance depth, clarity, and impact in writing. Simple manageable ways to assess and then differentiate sentence instruction in ways that support students who struggle and challenge students who excel will be shared.

Participants will receive:
-a course handout packet
-a copy of From Talking to Writing: Strategies for Supporting Narrative and Expository Writing, Second Edition (2018) by Terrill M. Jennings & Charles W. Haynes
