Students with dyslexia and related language-learning difficulties often struggle to express themselves in writing. Sentences are meaning bearers of language, and research indicates that systematic sentence instruction improves the quantity and quality of children’s text-level writing. This interactive workshop provides an overview of structured, theme-centered strategies for developing sentence-level writing in ways that will then enable students to produce compelling and elaborated text-level writing, with richer sentences at the base of their writing.
