Product Description
Beginning writers often compose with a series of choppy sentences and fragments. While some authors might be known for this style, most writing demands a more fluid style of composition. This fluidity can be easily achieved with simple sentence combining.

This unit focuses on the combining of sentences and fragments with the use of conjunctions. It includes instruction on conjunctions with examples, an exercise on sentence combining, and a paragraph editing assignment.

CONJUNCTIONS INFORMATION SHEETS
A 2-page instruction sheet to each student lists most of the commonly used conjunctions and explains their use with examples. The sheet makes a handy reference guide for further writing assignments.

FINDING THE COMBINATION
An exercise that provides practice in using conjunctions to combine sentences encourages students to vary conjunction usage and style to fit them to the needs of the sentence.

EDITING WITH CONJUNCTIONS
A writing exercise that can be used as an individual or small group assignment, allows students to edit a writing sample with the use of conjunctions and sentence combining.

NOTE: No answer key is provided for these exercises because there are many ways in which these sentences can be combined.
