The anatomy of a sentence

In the previous learning pathway, you learned how important using the right words can be. Now it’s time to look more closely at the sentences that are formed by these words and how to edit them.



The overall purpose of this learning pathway is to learn how to edit your sentences. Your goal is to:

  • Learn how a proper sentence is constructed.
  • Learn what makes certain sentences less effective.
  • Learn about the benefits of punctuation and parallel structure.
  • Learn to fix issues to make your sentences, and ultimately your essay, more successful.
