Educator Inés Millin Mevs provide guidance on how to use sentence combining as a writing strategy for ELLs. Students combine two or more short sentences into one longer, more interesting sentence, using conjunctions, relative pronouns, and other function words. In the process, students learn about English grammar and syntax and how to construct paragraphs. The workbook is accompanied by a teacher's edition that includes the research base for all strategies, examples of scoring rubrics, and ideas for incorporating sentence combining into instruction.
