Together with Dr. Judith Hochman’s wonderful Writing Revolution System, this product is designed to help students fully understand the purpose and structure of a sentence and develop the ability to compose complex sentences that reflect extended thinking.
This product includes oral examples for teacher modeling as well as in-class activities for introducing the following concepts and goals of lesson 1.9:
When they’re writing, students often assume that their reader has extensive prior knowledge of the subject matter they’re covering. Sentence expansion encourages students to think about what the reader knows already or may need, or want, to know to better understand the students’ writing. Using this approach, students are able to provide information with greater precision.
To prevent student confusion, remember to follow Hochman Method guidelines related to sentence expansion activities as per the manual.
- Enables students to anticipate what a reader needs to know and to provide
- Checks comprehension
- Enables students to craft written language structures
- Develops the ability to summarize When
1. Expand a sentence using two or three of the question words: who, what, when, where, why, how
**Since the concepts and goals of this lesson are challenging, it is recommended that the work be completed together in class with teacher guidance.
Please Note: This product has been designed as a complementary activity to be used along with the full Writing Revolution Hochman Method. Before printing, teachers can choose between two different types of handwriting lines.
