Writing with Variety

BilboBaggins 2016-06-30 02:46:20

This is a writing exercise to encourage students to use a variety of sentence types when writing.

The assignment consists of comparing two short stories about Jack breaking his crown. The first story is written with only simple sentences, and the second one uses all three general sentence types.

After reading and comparing, the students write about a time they were scared using only simple sentences. Then, for revision, they will write the same story using different sentence types.

Note: This assignment presupposes knowledge, or lessons taught, on the three general sentence types: simple, compound, and complex.

The present downloadable worksheet was created for high school and adults at Pre-intermediate (A2), Intermediate (B1) and Upper-intermediate (B2) level. It is great for revising Conjunctions (aka connectives, e.g. and, but, or, so, then), Punctuation, Punctuation: Commas and Subordinate (dependent) clauses in English, and was designed for working on your class' Reading and Writing skills.
