Tools Students Need to Be Skillful Writers: Building Better Sentences
This book demonstrates how to teach two of the basic sentence patterns of the English language and then manipulate those patterns to create twenty-four different patterns. The text provides a wide range of games that teachers can use to teach the parts of speech and extension activities to meet the demands of RTI. The skills are aligned to the Common Core Standards. Samples of student work show how to move the students from strong sentence writing to effective essay development.
