Summary

The Second Edition of Great Sentences for Great Paragraphs teaches beginning- and low-intermediate-level students the grammar needed for accurate sentence construction and the basics of paragraph development. The text uses sample paragraphs to provide students with authentic input regarding English composition, paragraph organization, and cohesion. In addition, contextualized grammar activities, suggestions for additional writing practice, journal-writing assignments, and an emphasis on peer editing all work together to help students develop academic writing skills.

  • The Word Building feature offers practice with common suffixes and helps students develop a rich vocabulary.
  • Building Better Sentences encourages students to practice constructing and combining sentences--the cornerstones of good paragraph writing.
  • Many guided writing activities are supported by additional online material and provide independent practice of targeted structures. Activities with additional web-based content are indicated by icons in the text.
  • Quizzes on the instructor web site help you assess student progress.
