"Add more variety!" I'd say to my class. But I never really knew what this actually meant. Suprise! This bad advice never improved students' writing. In these videos, students learn nine specific ways to add variety just by changing the beginning of their sentences. This was easily one of my students' favorite writing tools - because it actually helped them.

Objective

Students will continue to practice changing the beginning of their sentences to add more variety to their overall writing.

Steps

  1. Start with "The Reason" using "because" or "since."
  2. Start with prepositional phrases to show time or location.
  3. Start with a simile.
