Product Description
Constructing solid, sophisticated sentences requires planning and a detailed blueprint of building techniques. This 30-slide PowerPoint presentation provides just that—a thorough introduction to the four types of sentence structure, how each is constructed, along with invitations for students to practice writing each type as you go through the lesson. Using a construction-site theme, this presentation first introduces clauses (both main and subordinate), then how they can be linked to form simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences. Ample examples are provided, and practice opportunities are presented at the end of each type of sentence. The presentation culminates in a brief video about the building of the Great Pyramid at Giza, which provides students with the raw material from which to build their own paragraph utilizing all four types of sentence structures. Help your students build great paragraphs composed of varied sentence structure and improve their overall writing. Works well with student whiteboards, providing easy monitoring of student engagement (a la Marzano).

Engaging and thorough but not overwhelming, this presentation could be broken into two sessions. This presentation is geared toward upper middle and high school students.
