Simple, complex, and compound sentences help make writing interesting. Every writer starts with simple sentences, but a whole paragraph full of them soon becomes boring. One way of providing variety is to create compound sentences by linking independent clauses, or to create complex sentences with independent and dependent clauses. Learning all of these ways of presenting thoughts gives students the tools to express an endless variety of information.

Time4Writing’s free writing resources cover simple sentences, complex sentences, and compound sentences. The games, printables, presentation, and video supplement Time4Writing’s online courses. Designed to help students improve their writing skills, regardless of academic grade or proficiency level, Time4Writing’s 8-week courses provide more in-depth practice and one-on-one instruction by a certified teacher.
