Quick Overview

Proficiency in the Sentence Writing Strategy is appropriate for students who already have a thorough grounding in basic concepts and terms (such as "subject" and "verb"). In Proficiency in the Sentence Writing Strategy instruction, students learn advanced sentence writing skills, including writing compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences.


Proficiency in the Sentence Writing Strategy and Fundamentals in the Sentence Writing Strategy together constitute a strategy for recognizing and writing 14 sentence patterns with four types of sentences: simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex. In studies, students who have learned the Sentence Writing Strategy consistently produce written products that contain 100 percent complete sentences and at least 40 percent complicated sentences. Their written products include more words, more sentences, and a greater variety of sentences than those of low-achieving students who have not learned the strategy.
