1 Learning Objective: To vary our sentence structures Do Now!!! You have 5 minutes. What is the difference between these 4 sentences? I love Shakespeare. Although I love Shakespeare, I still find it difficult. I love Shakespeare but it is a difficult type of play to study. I find Shakespeare beautiful, which helps when it is difficult to understand.

2 Introducing sentence types Simple Louise is my best friend. Compound – Louise is my best friend but we dont live in the same country. Complex – Although we live far away from each other, Louise will always be my best friend. Louise will always be my friend although we live very far apart.

12 The most important thing, when looking at the issue of disaffected youth, is not to apportion blame elsewhere but to decide what needs to be done. The answer is simple. The youth of today are not awful. They are not knife wielding maniacs and they are not the scum of the earth. They are bored. Young people in this area have limited resources and a lot of time on their hands. It comes as no surprise to me to hear that this area has a high proportion of Londons ASBOs. What else is there to do other than to hang out with your friends? The youth in this area need stimuli, creative outlets and a safe place to go. The friendship groups that grow from apathy need not be labelled as gangs and outlawed. These groups need a place to make their voices count. They need a place to call their own. They also need to make their talents known and to, for once, feel good about themselves. Perhaps the kids should be at home revising. But perhaps they should also have a youth that is not corralled by the never ending drudgery of the education system. Perhaps they need help to get a life.

14 No matter how hot the day, however, the children would always play in the gentle, rolling meadows. With wide brimmed hats and skin slippery with sun block, they chittered and chattered like sparrows, as they frolicked in their favourite spot. Now, their favourite spot is very important to this story because in this particular spot is a large, long, scaly rock that looks amazingly similar to a sleeping dragon. The children knew it was a dragon. The grown ups knew it was a dragon. The dogs and cats and birds knew it was a dragon. But nobody was scared because it never, ever moved.
