Unlike traditional grammar books that emphasize sentence analysis, these worktexts ask students to imitate the sentence styles of professional writers, making the sentence composing process enjoyable and challenging. Killgallon teaches subliminally, nontechnically -- the ways real writers compose their sentences, the ways students subsequently intuit within their own writing.
Designed to produce sentence maturity and variety, the worktexts offer extensive practice in four sentence-manipulating techniques: sentence unscrambling, sentence imitating, sentence combining, and sentence expanding. It's demonstrably true that Sentence Composing can work anywhere -- in any school, with any student.
