SAT Essay Rubric – Sentence Structure (Transcript)
This is the fourth of five videos in which I discuss the essay grading rubric. In the first video I discussed Development of Position, in the second I discussed Organization in the third I discussed Use of Language, and in this video I’d like to discuss Sentence Structure. This is an easy one. I’m going to keep this short.
I don’t think you should worry about Sentence Structure. You’re supposed to vary your sentence structure in the Essay. Most people, when they think, when they speak, and when they write, will naturally vary their sentence structure. You’re not going to have to structure every sentence exactly the same. Trust me. Don’t think about Sentence Structure and you will be just fine. Just write the way you think, stay organized, develop your position, don’t force the vocabulary and Sentence Structure will fall into place. So I’m going to keep this video short. If you just don’t think about Sentence Structure, you will vary it and you will score high in this category.
