  • Wilson has helped to add, revise and update exercises and to clarify instructions throughout the text.

  • Review exercises at the ends of key units ask students to illustrate what they've learned so far using multiple sentence-combining skills. The exercises are grouped around a factual topic and guide students through a sequence of sentence-combining prompts that illustrate logical relationships between sentences.
  • Sentence-joining and sentence-modifying activities teach students to produce specific, concise, fluent sentences.
  • Exercise sets involving new scenarios give students the opportunity to develop their sentence variety in a creative context.
  • Some exercises within each unit use a narrative approach to show students how individual sentences operate in a larger context.
