Participants in this engaging, interactive webinar learn about the importance of sentence-level instruction both for developing writing skills and improving reading comprehension. First, they establish a framework for understanding best practices in sentence work. They then 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 leave this webinar with a lesson plan framework and hands-on strategies they can implement the very next day with their students.
