I don’t know about you, but one of my struggles as a middle school English teacher is having my students write longer, more sophisticated sentences. They still LOVE to write simple sentences, making their writing choppy, boring and redundant. For me, the lesson below has worked wonders!
Included in the set is:
1. a Smart Board presentation to teach compound sentences
2. A handout to accompany the Smart Board Presentation
3. Two application dittoes, where students have to format their own compound sentences with the facts given.
4. Suggestion and Instruction Sheet
