“In the beginning was the word…”, but at some point the word has to become the sentence which ultimately becomes the essay. Therein lies the problem. Many students simply do not know what constitutes an effective sentence, let alone can write one. This unit, designed to take place over the course of a quarter or semester, presents a 100+ PowerPoint slide presentation covering the following topics:
• Famous opening sentences
• Clauses and phrases
• Adverbs in sentences
• Short, choppy sentences
• Long, stringy sentences -- eliminating deadwood
• Specificity in sentences
• Modifiers - misplace/dangling
• Dash sentences
• Passive voice
• End of unit assessment
Numerous exercises on these concepts are provided within the PowerPoint or may be accessed in the zip file, printed out and distributed to students.
