How would you rewrite this to show it as dialogue in a story?


Monday october 8 no school

Dialogue:

The prisoner on the bed rambled on,“…and I also enjoy lawn care and yard work but my indoor hobbies are collecting things like baseball cards, hockey cars, wacky packages, as well as stamps and coins but not paper money because, well I don’t really know why but I do know that I also…”.

“When will this guy’s sentence be over?”thought the prisoner sitting across from him.

Let’s take a look at:

INDEPENDENT CLAUSES


Monday october 8 no school

  • INDEPENDENT CLAUSES a.k.a.

  • COMPLETE SENTENCES :

  • Contain at least one subject AND one verb

  • Express a complete thought with finality (that’s why it is independent)

  • Can be combined with other independent clauses to make other types of sentences

  • PRACTICE:

  • Using only the words in the dialogue for the guy on the left, write:

  • 2 examples of independent clauses

  • 2 non-examples of independent clauses


Monday october 8 no school

  • EXAMPLES OF INDEPENDENT CLAUSES:

  • I also enjoy lawn care and yard work.

  • My indoor hobbies are collecting things like baseball cards, hockey cards, wacky packages, as well as stamps and coins but not paper money.

  • I don’t really know why.

NON- EXAMPLES OF INDEPENDENT CLAUSES (a.k.a. SENTENCE FRAGMENTS):

I also enjoy.

My indoor hobbies.

As well as stamps and coins.

But not paper money.

I do know that I also.


Monday october 8 no school

So….I already know how to write a sentence. How does this help me with my narrative?

LET’S

ASK

JUSTIN BEIBER!

Monday october 8 no school

Let’s take a look at:

COMPOUND SENTENCES


Monday october 8 no school

  • So….

  • If your story contains lots of independent clauses and some of them have a lot of details in common…

  • …you can combine those sentences into one…

  • …like a marriage…

  • …between

  • Miss Independent Clause 1

  • &

  • Mr. Independent Clause 2.

Miss Independent Clause 1

Mr. Independent Clause 2

  • This could help to make your story:

  • More clear

  • More concise or specific (which could help to make it shorter!)

  • Free of lots of repetition


Monday october 8 no school

  • 2 COMBINED INDEPENDENT CLAUSES a.k.a.

  • COMPOUND SENTENCE :

  • Contains two independent clauses

  • The two clauses are joined with a comma and a conjunction OR a semicolon

  • Conjunctions are “FANBOYS” of compound sentences. They are:

    • FOR

    • AND

    • NOR

    • BUT

    • OR

    • YET

    • SO


Monday october 8 no school

  • COMPOUND SENTENCES WITH CONJUNCTIONS

  • PRACTICE:

  • Using the comic strip, write down 2 examples of compound sentences. For each example, write:

  • The 2 independent clauses that make it up

  • The conjunction that follows the comma between the two independent clauses


Monday october 8 no school

  • COMPOUND SENTENCE EXAMPLE #1:

  • SENTENCE: Sometimes I listen to my baby sister crying at night, and it tears my heart out.

  • INDEPENDENT CLAUSES:

  • (1) Sometimes I listen to my baby sister crying at night. (2) It tears my heart out.

  • CONNECTING CONJUNCTION:

  • and

  • COMPOUND SENTENCE EXAMPLE #2:

  • SENTENCE: The world is filled with trouble, and she’s so innocent.

  • INDEPENDENT CLAUSES:

  • (1) The world is filled with trouble. (2) She’s so innocent.

  • CONNECTING CONJUNCTION:

  • and


Monday october 8 no school

  • COMPOUND SENTENCES WITH SEMICOLONS

  • A semicolon is used to replace both the comma and the conjunction in a compound sentence


Monday october 8 no school

  • COMPOUND SENTENCES WITH SEMICOLONS

  • PRACTICE:

  • Use 2 examples of compound sentences from the comic strip, and rewrite it using a colon to replace the comma and conjunction.


Monday october 8 no school

  • COMPOUND SENTENCE w/ SEMICOLON EXAMPLE #1:

  • SENTENCE: Sometimes I listen to my baby sister crying at night, and it tears my heart out.

  • REWRITTEN W/SEMICOLON:

  • Sometimes I listen to my baby sister crying at night; it tears my heart out.

  • COMPOUND SENTENCE w/ SEMICOLON EXAMPLE #2:

  • SENTENCE: The world is filled with trouble, and she’s so innocent.

  • REWRITTEN W/SEMICOLON:

  • The world is filled with trouble; she’s so innocent.

DO NOW 1: “The NFL Combine”

Monday october 8 no school

The National Football League (NFL) entry draft is the primary path for college players wishing to enter the professional game. The NFL Combine, held every spring in Indianapolis, Indiana, is a showplace for college players looking to solidify or improve their draft prospects. While NFL teams study the on-field performance of players throughout their careers, the NFL Combine provides a venue for players to be studied individually and in great detail.

Held over a period of three days, the NFL Combine is physically challenging. In addition to precise, standardized physical measurements, players undergo a battery of tests to gauge their physical capabilities. Sprints ranging from 10 yards to 40 yards measure quickness and speed. Vertical and broad jumps measure lower body explosiveness. Shuttle- and cone-based drills measure speed, body control, and endurance. The bench press, with multiple repetitions at 225 pounds, tests upper body strength and stamina. The NFL Combine also has a battery of tests designed for specific positions.

In addition to physical tests, the NFL Combine looks at the football-related mental capabilities of players. Position coaches work with players one-on-one to gauge their coachability. For positions requiring a great deal of mental agility, such as quarterback, head coaches and offensive or defensive coordinators may study game video with players to estimate the depth of their understanding of the game. Sports psychologists conduct interviews to get a sense of player personality and mental toughness.

concerning an avalanche,

a tornado,

a hurricane,

a volcanic eruption,

something had,

gone wrong with the sound apparatus,

thus muffling and finally cutting off all noise,

all of the blasts and repercussions and thunders,

second,

ripped the film from the projector and

inserted in its place

a peaceful tropical slide which did not move or tremor.

You know, it is bad to feel that you disappointed your mom because you disobeyed her rules. It is horrible to feel like an outcast with your friends. And lastly, it is excruciatingly painful to fall on your face and then have it slide across pavement. I realized that if I had listened to my mom in the first place, I would not have had to go through any of those feelings. Yes, the concrete was hard, but it also taught me a hard lesson.
