Warm-Up: Think-Pair- Share Which type of sentence requires a coordinating conjunction? Which type of sentence requires a subordinating conjunction?
The crème de la crème of Sentences Compound-Complex
Terms we’ll need Independent Clause: Subject and a Verb Dependent Clause: Subject, Verb, and AAAWWUBBIS
SoW#16: Compound- Complex Definition: A sentence that has two independent clauses and one or more dependent clauses.
Compound sentence A compound sentence has two or more independent clauses that are usually joined by a coordinating conjunction: Henry got a new job, so he has to move. I have a lot of homework, but I am not going to have time to study tonight.
Complex Sentence A complex sentence has an independent clause and one or more dependent clauses: Although it was the first day of spring, it still snowed. I can eat that bowl of ice cream after I run a mile.
Observe: What do the different fonts and underline designate? 1. Although I like to go camping, I haven't had the time to go lately, and I haven't found anyone to go with. 2. We decided that the movie was too violent, but our children, who like to watch scary movies, thought that we were wrong. 3. Laura forgot her friend's birthday, so she sent her a card when she finally remembered.
Notice You need a comma after an introductory dependent clause You still need a comma before the FANBOY
1. Write a compound-complex sentence with an introductory dependent clause 2.Write a compound-complex sentence with the dependent clause last. 3. Write a compound-complex sentence about your hopes for Spring. Imitate
1. 2. 3. Imitate
Exercise: Building Sentences Begin with two independent clauses: The team captain jumped for joy. The fans cheered. Then combine the independent clauses to form a compound sentence: The team captain jumped for joy, and the fans cheered. Now, add a dependent clause to your compound sentence to create a compound-complex sentence. The team captain jumped for joy, and the fans cheered because we won the state championship. OR When we won the state championship, the team captain jumped for joy, and the fans cheered.
Your Turn Partner A will write 2 independent clauses. Partner B will have to turn the clauses into a compound sentence (semi-colon or comma, FANBOY) and add a dependent clause. Then switch roles. Now Partner B writes two independent clauses, and Partner A turns it into a compound- complex sentence.
Sentence Identification: Underline the independent clause(s) and highlight the dependent clause(s) “I looked at her angrily.” “As we headed west on Route 22, I began to feel a real sense of hope about Tangerine Middle School.” “I didn’t realize at first that the boy was talking to me, and I had no idea what he meant.” “I mean, if we moved your dresser over against the other wall and put the desk out in the living room, I think we could fit another twin bed in there.” Simple Complex Compound Compound- Complex
