With the first edition of his book, Don Killgallon changed the
way thousands of high school English teachers and their students
look at language, literature, and writing by focusing on the
sentence. In this revised edition, Killgallon presents the same
proven methodology but offers all-new writing exercises designed
specifically for the middle school student.
Unlike traditional grammar books that emphasize the parsing of
sentences, this worktext asks students to imitate the sentence
styles of professional writers, making the sentence composition
process an enjoyable and challenging one. Killgallon teaches
subliminally, nontechnically--the ways real writers compose their
sentences, the ways students subsequently intuit within their own
Designed to produce sentence maturity and variety, the worktext
offers extensive practice in four sentence-manipulating
techniques: sentence unscrambling, sentence imitating, sentence
combining, and sentence expanding. All of the activities are
based on model sentences written by widely respected authors.
They are designed to teach students structures they should but
seldom use. The rationale is that imitation and practice are as
valuable in gaining competence and confidence in written language
production as they are in oral language production.
Since the practices have proven successful for the great
majority of students who have used them in all kinds of schools,
it's demonstrably true that Sentence Composing can work
anywhere--in any school, with any student.
