Grammar how to use semi colons

Grammar: how to use semi-colons

Rule 1: Use a semicolon to combine two very closely related complete sentences.

  • Example: She went to the store; it is her favorite place to shop.

    Rule 2: Use a semicolon along with a conjunctive adverb and a comma to clarify the relationship between two closely related complete sentences. Conjunctive adverbs include however, therefore, in addition, moreover, subsequently, consequently, instead, and additionally.

  • Example: Romeo killed Tybalt; however, his best friend Mercutio was killed first.

    Rule 3: Use a semicolon to separate a series of phrases or clauses that are long or have punctuation, like commas, within them.

  • Example: Romeo’s life is filled with several foil characters such as the Nurse and Lady Capulet, Juliet’s mother figures; Benvolio and Mercutio, Romeo’s best friends; and the Friar and the Nurse, Romeo and Juliet’s mentors.

Grammar 2 semi colons

Grammar #2: semi-colons

Story board activity

Story Board Activity

Storyboard activity directions

Storyboard activity directions:

  • Choose a scene that you would like to work with for today’s activity.

  • Create a Storyboard for that particular scene. In other words, draw what the audience would see on stage.

  • Choose three “moments” from the scene to draw – the three moments must be somewhat different from each other. Be sure to include both pictures and dialogue.

  • You will not be graded on artistic quality, but you will be graded on effort. In other words, try to add as much detail as possible, even if you are a terrible drawer.

Story board activity1

Story Board Activity

  • You will create THREE separate story boards for your assigned scene, with each one representing what the stage and characters would have looked like during a specific moment in the scene. We’ll present these on the document camera.

  • You will analyze how part of your scene serves as an example of dramatic irony.

  • During presentations, the class will guess what example of dramatic irony occurs in each scene. And, each person will complete a handout while the groups present.

Exit slip storyboard reflection

In your groups, you should be able to answer the following questions about YOUR scene:

  • Which scene did you select?

  • Explain the dramatic irony in your selected scene. What is this an example of dramatic irony?

  • Why did you choose the three moments in the story that you selected for your storyboards?

  • How did you represent the dramatic irony within those three moments?

  • Think about the choices Shakespeare had to make as an author. Why would he choose to structure the scene with the use of dramatic irony?

  • What kind of mood did the use of dramatic irony create?
