Description: Sentence-level skills are at the heart of narrative and expository writing. Learn latest research-based methods for supporting all students in independently, naturally and fluently crafting beautiful, meaning-rich sentences. Support students in deeply understanding what a sentence is (and is not), and how to avoid run-ons or fragments. Lead students through a structured, scaffolded, flexible sequence of instruction. See examples of how to differentiate this instruction as you go, based on assessing students' ongoing writing samples. Avoid an isolated grammar focus by embedding this instruction right into meaningful writing experiences. View sentence grammar not as a set of rules, but as an exciting palette of choice students can make to impact their reader's experience and express their voices. Develop fluency through short skill spring games (10 min. daily) designed to help students internalize the use of varied, authentic word selection as well as topic-centered sentence expansion and variation. Also help them to practice sentence combining and artful sentence imitation rooted in disciplinary vocabulary. Put students in charge of their growth by helping them self-monitor and set goals so they develop the motivation and self-regulation that expert writers possess.
