The building blocks we've studies are: parts of speech, types of sentences by purpose and end punctuation, internal punctuation elements, phrases and clauses, and types of sentences by structure. Each building block helps us to move away from the idea of right-or-wrong writing and toward a more sophisticated approach. Rather than simply making sure that we are constructing "correct" sentences when we write, we are working to intentionally consider how we use language--the types of words, punctuation, and sentences--to create an effect upon readers.
Below are a few posters/reminders to help students implement these new steps in writing. The pictures didn't come out too great, but hopefully the idea is clear. If you've got any other ideas on how to create reminders, then shoot me a message.
