This easy one-page handout can be copied and given to students, but what I do is to project it via my Elmo throughout the room. It makes sentence variety easy for students to assess in their essays or short stories. Students highlight or underline their work with a color-coded system that makes extremely clear whether they have enough variety in their sentences. Students enjoy this and benefit from this final oversight of their work. I always give students the option to revise, once they see quite graphically the results!
