Do you seek to improve your students' writing? Do you desire for your students to think and write in an organized manner? Have you encouraged your students to spice up their writing style only to find the same old sentences over and over? Improve students' writing styles with varied sentence openings by using the thirteen sentence patterns introduced in this bundled lesson resource with two PowerPoint presentations and a student note sheet. Based on J.E. Sparks' book Write for Power, this bundled lesson package reviews the concept of power writing and introduces the first thirteen sentence patterns that Sparks includes in his book. The sentence patterns included here urge students to revamp the ways they construct and open their sentences, leading to a more interesting and more mature style of writing. In our school system, we have found Power Writing reaches some kids who do not respond to traditional outlining or webbing techniques; furthermore, many kids find this technique simple to remember for organizing their writing on standardized tests such as achievement or graduation exams like Indiana's ISTEP and Ohio's OAT and OGT tests. Includes a ten slide instructional PowerPoint on the Power Writing concept, a colorful 47 slide PowerPoint on the sentence patterns containing key grammar instruction and multiple examples of each patten, a student note sheet. The sentence pattern PowerPoint is broken up with five educational trivia question and answer slides to help pique and maintain student interest - especially if accompanied by prizes or rewards provided by the instructor!
