Write Rockin’ Sentences with Basic Sentence Structure

Good morning, Jags!

Today and tomorrow we’re going to talk about basic sentence structure, but because we’re transitioning to the flipped learning model we’re going to practice learning about sentence structure from a video in class.

First, please watch the video below with a partner or two. In part I, we’re only focusing on independent clauses, simple sentences, compound sentences, and coordinating conjunctions, so will only study Basic Sentence Structure Part I.

Excellent! Review your notes. Do you have clear, easy to understand notes on simple and compound sentences? How about on independent clauses and coordinating conjunctions? If you don’t, you’ll need to go back to the first video and rewatch the sections containing the information you’re missing so you can revise your notes.

Second, watch part II of the video below and complete your notes. You need to have clear notes on dependent clauses, subordinating conjunctions, complex sentences, and compound-complex sentences.

All done? Great! Review your notes. Do you have clear, easy to understand notes on complex and compound-complex sentences? How about on dependent clauses and subordinating conjunctions? If not, you’ll need to go back to the second video and rewatch the sections containing the missing, so you can revise your notes.

Third, take a moment to make up some test questions for the most important information within your notes (both parts one and two). When you’ve finished, quiz your partners! Do they understand simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences as well as you do? How about independent and dependent clauses, and coordinating and subordinating conjunctions?

Fourth, if you have clear, rockin’ notes and if your partners are content with their notes, please check out the directions for your upcoming research paper here. You have the rest of the period to conduct research on your assigned deity.

You’re awesome! Enjoy the rest of your day!
