Teaching Sentence Structure: The Google Slides Presentation for Direct Instruction

The Google Slide breaks sentence structure down to the basics, which makes it easier for students to grasp. First students learn about subjects and predicates because this is the basis for understanding sentence structure. Then, they learn about the difference between independent and dependent clauses. Finally, the Google Slides presentation teaches each sentence structure type (simple sentences, compound sentences, complex sentences, and compound-complex sentences) with detailed examples.

Before you know it, your students will master this concept and be able to write amazing compound-complex sentences.

This resource is ideal for distance learning and Google Classroom.
