Sentences: Types, Variety, Concision
This vidcast takes a closer look at the sentence-level within a document. Often in graduate level writing, sentence clarity is an issue because writers are struggling with highly complex material and with communicating that complexity clearly. This vidcast discusses sentence types (e.g., simple, complex) and varying sentence structure for rhetorical effect. Looking at sentence type throughout a document can often aid in the process of identifying and resolving sentence clarity issues. The vidcast also discusses how to revise sentences for concision. The handouts included below provide more details and examples.
