The Development and Use of Sentence Combining in the Reading Program.
This paper shows how to integrate reading comprehension instruction and writing instruction through the use of sentence combining--the act of combining several short sentences that have been derived by transformational analysis from longer ones. Suggestions are offered to guide teachers through the necessary steps for designing appropriate sentence combining activities. The three sections of the paper present a definition and description of sentence combining; a procedure for production of sentence combining sets with examples that can serve as models, including closed and open varieties of exercises; and a number of suggestions for using the materials.
