Too often, instructors overlook the sentence level in working with student writing. Syntax is essential for developing students writing and comprehension skills. This hands-on, interactive workshop explores useful strategies for developing students' sentence sense. Beginning with a brief overview of writing research, participants then focus on parts of speech and sentence parts as they apply to the act of writing. They learn about the components of a good lesson and practice with introduced techniques, many of which they can then apply the very next day in their classrooms!
