Editing for Sentence

Variety


You will need:

  • A blue marker for intro phrases

  • A green marker for intro clauses

  • A red, orange, or yellow marker for simple and compound sentences that are not introduced by another phrase or clause

  • A pen or pencil to write explanations when necessary


Blue for intro phrases

  • Read the text of the essay, minus any quotes included, and underline or highlight any intro phrases.

  • At work, Winston displays. . .

  • Understanding his role in the world, John. . .

  • To better understand human nature, Bernard studies. . .

  • From the moment of their creation, citizens of the world feel. . .

  • At the reservation, John and his mother. . .


Green for intro clauses

  • Read the text of the essay, minus any quotes included, and underline or highlight any intro clauses.

  • When Lenina steps off of the helicopter at John’s lighthouse, she finds. . .

  • Because Bernard sees the world differently, he does not. . .

  • Until Winston pursues a relationship with Julia, he lives a life. . .


Other clause beginners

  • after, before, once, since, until, when, whenever, while

  • as, because, since

  • so that, that

  • If, even if, provided that, unless

  • although, even though, though, whereas

  • wherever

  • whether


Use red, orange, or yellow for:

  • Marking simple sentences.

  • Winston waits for O’Brien’s signal.

  • Similarly, Linda’s ugliness disgusts Lenina.

  • Orwell demonstrates Winston’s ideal of the free individual.

  • Marking compound sentences:

  • Winston reads the book himself, and then he shares the book with Julia.

  • The D.H.C. explains the creation of children to the reader, and later, Mustapha Mond explains the inner workings of the government.


With the pencil or pen. . .

  • Put an arrow by any sentence beginning word that your partner has so far that repeats another beginning word.


Now what?

  • The more green that you have, the more complex and sophisticated your writing is (in general).


What else?

  • What you marked in the hot color should not take up a lot (more than 1/3 to ¼) of the writing.


And…?

  • Look at the words that begin each sentence.

  • Are you alternating kinds of beginnings?

  • Are you using a variety to words to start the beginnings?


Consider. . .

  • Making changes when you were repetitious.

  • Alternating sentence beginnings to vary the sentence structure. (Use more than just one or two sentence patterns.)

  • Combining simple sentence and their ideas into complex sentences to reflect the sophistication and complexity of your ideas.
