    Oh YES, its called the grammar symbols. Perhaps you can search atoz archives for any of my posts with the key word of grammar symbols. ITs a visual way using geometric shapes of varying sizes and colors to SEE the sentence structure. It will improve their sentence quality and therefore, their paragraphs will be more complex!
