Workshop Description: More often than not, students struggle at the sentence level far more than they struggle at the paragraph level. This workshop, which is aligned with the Language section of the Common Core State Standards, will focus on parts of speech and sentence parts as they apply to the act of writing. Participants will learn about the components of a good lesson and strategies for developing sentence sense in student writers. They will examine parts of speech as a method of understanding the way words interact with each other and sentence parts as building blocks for creating different kinds of sentences. They will practice with the elements introduced and model the strategies suggested.
