Product Description

Are you looking for a writing lesson you can use to teach your students how to reduce wordy sentences? This PowerPoint lesson focuses on the importance of reducing sentences to make them more focused and easier for the reader to follow. This resource contains a 47-slide PowerPoint, a matching companion handout, two reference charts, and two worksheets that can be used to provide a follow-up practice opportunity.

The PowerPoint contains the following format:

Slides 1-7: Introduction

Slides 8-11: Reducing Sentences that are Longer than Necessary

Slides 12-17: Avoid Wordy Phrases

Slides 18-26: Avoid Expletive Constructions

Slides 27-31: Use a Short Sentence for Effect

Slides 32-39: Practice Slides

Slides 40-47: Reducing Sentences in the Context of a Story

The worksheets contain 4 shorter paragraphs and one longer narrative passage that have sentences that can be reduced using the four techniques highlighted throughout the PowerPoint.

The reference charts are personal anchor charts that can be glued into an interactive notebook or tucked into a writing folder. One chart lists wordy phrases and their alternatives. The other chart lists examples of sentences with expletive constructions.
