Variety is the spice of writing sentences

Challenge:
Variety is the spice of writing sentences

Scenario:
My student struggles with variety in sentences, grammar, and spelling. I have started to introduce him to new vocabulary to try and get him to be more descriptive in both his writing and speaking. I’m not sure though how to focus on varying his sentence structure so that his writing improves.

Possible Strategies:
Exposing the student to examples of good writing is key in helping them develop ideas on how others do it. Remember to do this in an explicit way. For example, use a variety of graphic organizers to help him organize ideas.
