Is that strategy from Basic Writing Skills? Dr. Hochman uses a sentence expansion strategy that is almost like that and the students love doing it. You can do it with any of the question words and then the kids experiment with writing the information in a different order (like putting the when first) It starts with a short sentence like -

They twinkle.

who or what - stars
when - at night
where - up in the sky

expanded sentence

At night, stars twinkle up in the sky.

It really starts to force young writers away from that simple declarative sentence. I love that program.
