This guide is intended to provide a starting point for you to approach the teaching of writing in your classroom. Good writing will generally feature a mix of sentence types, all of which are structured and punctuated correctly. It is important to note that the choice and mix of sentences in a text should be informed by an understanding of
the purpose and audience for the writing. The choice of sentence types may also be influenced by the genre of the writing, which will be informed by the curriculum area for which it is being produced. This is why writing needs to be taught explicitly and systematically, across all year levels and subjects, beginning with the essential
foundation of sentences.
