Storyboard Text

  • 1. Explain why the English language needs phrases AND clauses .
  • We need phrases because phrases add meaning to a sentence which we need.
  • We also need clauses because clauses express a complete sentence which we need
  • Students what is the answer to this question?
  • 2. Explain why the English language needs AND semicolons AND colons.
  • We need semicolons because they can link two independent clauses together that are related.
  • We need colons because they can be used between independent clauses where the second sentence explains the first.
  • Great! Now what's the answer to this question?
  • 3. Explain how dependent clauses are 'dependent' on independent clauses.
  • Even though a dependent clause has a subject and a verb, it is not a complete thought.
  • Since it is not a complete thought, it can't be a complete sentence. It needs to be with an independent clause to form a sentence.
  • Good! Now what's the answer to question 3?
  • 4. Explain the role of the subordinating conjunction.
  • The role of a subordinating conjunction is show the importance of the independent clause.
  • Also it provides a transition between two ideas in the same sentence.
  • Now what's the answer to number 4?
  • 5. Give 5 examples of sentences with a dependent clause and a independent clause(switch order of clauses every sentence).
  • 1. While I was walking, I saw a dog. 2. I started sweating while running. 3. While I was eating, I was watching TV.
  • 4.  I was working while I was eating. 5. While I was studying, I was listening to music. 
  • Good job! Now what is the answer to number 5?
  • 6. Explain how semicolons AND colons are used (with examples).
  • Semicolons are used to link two independent clauses together that are closely related in thought. For example, "We had too many fumbles; we lost the game.
  • Colons are used between independent clauses when the second sentence explains the first sentence. For example, "She kept repeating: "I really want that car!"
  • Lastly, what is the answer to number 6?
