Through a PowerPoint, students are introduced to the definition of a compound sentence, taught a chant to remember the definition, and are guided through practice (which can be done on whiteboards) in writing compound sentences. In the step-by-step practice of writing compound sentences, students see how to build from simple sentences. Students also learn the relevance /importance of writing compound sentences. After ample guided practice and independent practice, students may take the test (purchase the paired compound sentence test document).
