Today I came to class and we started learning about independent and dependent clauses. We went over the sentence we had yesterday and started on Wednesday in our “Appendix a packet”. The independent clause (also called the main clause) is in every complete sentence, can usually stands alone, and doesn’t start with a relative pronoun or a subordinating conjunction. The dependent clause (also called the subordinate clause),can never stand alone, starts with a subordinating conjunction, and there are 3 types.1. Adverb 2. Additive 3. Noun . After we learned about these and applied it to our sentence she told us we should study it for 5 minutes. Then we started our next assessment, “The Waxed Generation” by Michael Koenigs. We will have time to work on this in class for the next few days.
