Jenkinson, Andrea
This teaching guide urges the use of sentence combining as a technique to improve both the reading and the writing of students.

The guide is divided into the following six chapters: (1) "The Promise of Sentence Combining"; (2) "Using Sentence Combining in the Classroom"; (3) "Providing Signals: Cued Sentence-Combining Exercises"; (4) "Open Sentence-Combining Exercises: From Sentence to Paragraph to Discourse"; (5) "One Researcher's Sequence: Sentence-Combining Exercises for Elementary Students"; and (6) "A Brief Summary of Research." Contains 52 references and a 47-item annotated bibliography of related resources in ERIC. (NKA)
