This 28 slide PowerPoint presentation provides explanations and practice with five different ways of revising, or expanding, sentences. It includes: adding adjectives, adding adverbs, adding prepositional phrases, replacing common verbs with more specific ones, and combining sentences by using conjunctions.
Each part begins with an example, progresses through several brief practice activities, and then ends with sentences for students to revise on their own.
Revising and expanding individual sentences with this PowerPoint prepares students for improving their own writing later on by teaching then specific ways to revise.
