Synopsis

Daily Sentence Structures 15 Minutes a Day Towards Better Writing! by Alec Lees

This practical guide provides a straightforward way of teaching pupils to use a range of sentence structures in their own writing, whatever their ability. The sentence structures taught vary from short, dramatic sentences to complex, compound sentences. Each has been broken down into a series of 15-minute sessions that build on each other. By completing the daily sessions, pupils will have at their fingertips a system for creating imaginative and interesting writing in as little as six weeks. The Daily Sentence Structures approach raises attainment across all abilities and covers many of the writing requirements of the 2014 National Curriculum: Use grammatical structures; Make meaning clear and create effect; Use a range of sentence starters to create specific effects; Use commas to mark phrases and clauses; Sustain and develop ideas logically; Vary sentence structures; Use semi-colons and dashes. Furthermore, the systematic approach appeals especially to boys, who will enjoy applying the logic to their writing and being able to create 'instant paragraphs'. All pupils' confidence and self-esteem will increase, leading to better results across all subjects.
