What are the three sentence structures covered so far this week?

slide2

Sentence Constructions:

      • Simple Sentence
      • Compound Sentence
      • Complex Sentence
    • What are the key parts of each structure?
slide3

and now for number four…

The Compound-Complex Sentence

slide4

A compound-complex sentence contains two or more independent clauses and at least one dependent (subordinate) clause.

Turn to an elbow partner. Based on the definition try to construct a compound-complex sentence.

slide5

Example:

While Ted watched, he sprang, and blood flew.

dependent clause

independent clause

independent clause

How did you do?

slide6

More sentence examples:

While I wait for my water to purify, I strip down to my underclothes, and I wade into the mild current.

Rue stuffs another handful of leaves in her mouth, and soon I am laughing because the relief is so sweet.

When I set out my gear, I put my sunglasses on the blanket, and Rue gasps a little.

slide7

Pair up with an elbow partner:

Think of a theme or event as inspiration for your writing.

Create one simple sentence that is one independent clause with a subject and verb.

Now create a second independent clause and connect it to the first with a coordinating conjunction.

Finally add a dependent (subordinate) clause connected with a subordinating conjunction.

slide8

Share sentences.

  • Identify dependent and independent clauses.
  • Identify coordinating and subordinating conjunctions.
slide9

Finally copy and label the following compound-complex sentence.

Then the apples spill to the ground, and I am blown backward into the air as the ground shakes with explosions.

slide10

Then the apples spill

adv. adj. n. v.

to the ground,

prep. adj. n.

and I am blown backward

conj. pron. v. v. adv.

into the air

prep. adj. n.

as the ground shakes

conj. adj. n. v.

with explosions.

prep. n.

Which is the coordinating conjunction?

Which is the subordinating conjunction?
