We’ve learned about thesis statements, paragraphs, introductions, and conclusions. We discussed how to think about your audience and how to use language effectively. But the building block of your writing is the sentence. So in this section, we’re going to spend a little time reviewing techniques for writing powerful sentences. With a little practice, these can become a natural part of your writing process. They can also be an effective part of your revising process, as you work to ensure every sentence you write is as powerful as it can be in communicating your ideas to your reader.
