Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Editing our Second Draft for Sentence Structure - Section 1: Lesson Opener

 

When I taught this today, I made sure that I modeled it with a sample essay (that I composed) in which I could label all three kinds of sentences. I then stopped at a run-on sentence and said to myself, "Hmmm...maybe I could suggest to my partner that they could take this sentences and turn it into a simple sentence."

I should have shown myself stopping three times, at three different run-on sentences, so I could show them my thinking for all three.

When they pick a draft to publish, I will re-teach sentences as not only an editing strategy, but also a strategy in which you use different types of sentences to liven up your writing.
