The Complete Sentence Workout Book develops students' acquisition of skills in grammar, punctuation, and mechanics through an unparalleled assortment of exercise activities and an emphasis on learning these skills in the context of longer pieces of writing. The book works to make grammar and punctuation accessible to students. Although traditional terminology is used, activities are focused on an application of grammatical forms rather than the memorization of rules. The book's goal is to make students confident about sentence skills so that they can focus on writing. The book is carefully sequenced. Each chapter builds upon skills students master in previous chapters. Beginning with the sentence core, subjects and verbs, students learn to develop their sentence writing abilities through increasingly complex levels. Self-contained chapters can easily be adapted to the needs of individual students. Each chapter progresses in a developmental sequence. Chapter objectives and benefits to help students link the value of grammar to good writing are at the start of each chapter.Sentence exercises following explanatory material help students apply newly learned concepts, and later exercises encourage students to use their own writing and to put grammar concepts in their own words. Chapters conclude with review exercises which provide sentence level work initially and then progress to paragraphs and essays, many of which are by students, for editing and revision.
