Product Description
The file contains a comprehensive 45-slide PowerPoint lesson you can present to students to teach them the four types of sentences: simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex. Students will not only learn to identify the four types, but they will also learn to develop their own sentences to convey specific meanings, add variety to their writing, and become better writers. The PowerPoint slides incorporate engaging and effective design, custom animation, and clip art.

The PowerPoint includes:
• Lesson Objectives
• Common Core State Standards
• Clear explanations and several examples of each type of sentence, including list of coordinating conjunctions, adverbials, and subordinate conjunctions.
• Reasons for using the various types of sentences
• Explanation of compound subject, compound verb, and phrases (and their effects on clauses)
• Discussion questions embedded in the slides
• Practice sentences with answers
• Three practice paragraphs from literature with answers (“The Most Dangerous Game,” The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, and The Things They Carried)
• Independent writing assignment

With this lesson, my students master the four types of sentences and enjoy incorporating them in their own writing. I initially teach it in 8th or 9th grade and review it in 10th, 11th, or 12th. It can also be taught to advanced/gifted 6th and 7th graders.
