It’s Wednesday! Do-now: Independent and Dependent Clauses Review: Put into your notes if you think you need review… Independent clauses- have a subject, verb, and express a complete thought. E.g. Ms. Stitt, my teacher, wants her students to be strong at grammar. Dependent Clauses- has a subject/verb, but does not express a complete thought. Will often start with one of these words: after, although, as, as if, because, before, even though, if, in order to, since, though, unless, until, when, whether, while. E.g. When Ms. Stitt, my teacher, wants her students to be strong at grammar. **You DO NOT want dependent clauses- they don’t make sense by themselves.
Practice: Dependent or independent? 1. Jim studied at Caribou Coffee for his reading quiz. 1. Independent- has a subject, verb, and expresses a complete thought. 2. When Jim was at Caribou Coffee. 1. Dependent: What happened at Caribou Coffee? 3. Although he didn’t do a lot of work. 1. Dependent: Starts with although and doesn’t finish the thought. 4. Although he didn’t do a lot of work, he was still happy he went. 1. Independent- expresses the rest of the sentence. 5. After he went to Caribou. 1. Dependent- what happens after he went to Caribou? Not a complete thought.

The Notre Dame game was over, but the crowd refused to leave. 2) Use commas after introductory clauses, phrases, and words. 1) E.g.
