Varying Sentence Structure

43 min videomarch 12, 2019

In this session, we discuss what writing style is and how it impacts the essay score. Specifically, varying sentence structure can show the AP reader how mature your writing is. There are four basic types of sentences you can use: simple, complex, compound, and compound-complex. Writing with a varying sentence structure creates interest and also emphasizes certain points to the reader.
