Let’s Test Your Knowledge
  • I want you to create a concept map using Inspiration to tell me what you know about compound and complex sentences.

What is a concept map?

that s ok
That’s Ok!
  • I want you to tell me what you think compound and complex sentences are using a concept map with Inspiration.

What is a concept map?

An Easy Example of a Concept Map

A concept map is used to take an idea and organize your thoughts around that particular subject.

  • Now that you’ve watched the video add what you’ve learned to your concept map
compound sentence
Compound Sentence
  •  A compound sentence contains more than one independent clause (IC).
    • INDEPENDENT CLAUSE
  • Two important patterns for constructing compound sentences: 

IC ,conjunction IC. Or IC; IC.  

independent clause ic
Independent Clause (IC)
  • An independent clause is a meaningful group of words that contains both a subject and a verb. 
  • An independent clause can stand alone as a simple sentence.
  • EX. I eat bananas.
  • Eat bananas.
slide12
IC, conjunction IC.

IC1: I love to eat.IC2: It makes me fat. These two sentences could stand on their own, but to make your writing flow you could combine them using a conjunction.I love to eat, and it makes me fat.

slide13
IC; IC.

IC1: We went swimming.IC2: We had so much fun.Sometimes you don’t want to use a conjunction. There is always the option of a semi-colon. We went swimming; we had so much fun.

complex sentence
Complex Sentence
  • contains one independent clause (IC) and at least one dependent clause (DC).  
  • There are many exceptions, but these two patterns will help you punctuate most complex sentences: 

IC  DC.

(No comma is necessary if the IC comes first in the sentence.)

DC, IC.

(If the DC comes first, you must use a comma.)

dependent clause dc
Dependent Clause (DC)
  • A dependent clause is a meaningful group of words that contains both a subject and a verb
  • A dependent clause (DC) can NOT stand alone as a sentence  
  • EX. After I eat bananas
  • I eat bananas.
slide16
IC DC.

IC: I went on Facebook.DC: After I got home from practiceIf the IC comes before the DC, you do not need a comma. I went on Facebook after I got home from practice.

slide17
DC, IC.

IC: I went on Facebook.DC: After I got home from practiceIf the DC comes before the IC, you need a comma after the DC.After I got home from practice, I went on Facebook.

some practice
Some Practice
  • Identify these sentences as complex or compound.
  • If the sentence is compound, identify the independent clauses.
  • If the sentence is complex, identify the independent clause and the dependent clause.
  • TURN IN YOUR PAPER WHEN YOU FINISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
