Using Sentence-Combining To Teach Sentence Structure.
This paper describes a demonstration of a totally integrated discovery procedure to present sentence-combining practice. This practice makes students aware not only of the complex structures but of the usage and style related to each structure. Guidelines for the execution of the practice include: (1) the use of a sequence of questions by the teacher, (2) use of semantic relationships as a basic criterion for the combinations, (3) use of sentences in the practice that might naturally be used separately within each group that is to be combined, (4) incorporation within the practice of matters of usage and style, (5) incorporation within the practice of an awareness of sentence faults, and (6) integration within the practice of grammatical terminology. A detailed description of the demonstration is offered and the combination of sentences is appended. (Contains 8 references.) (JP)
