Transcript of Compound/Complex Sentences

How to get more out of your Schaffer Paragraph! Compound/Complex Sentences What is a
sentence? Now, try another one.
Use a different pattern. A compound-complex sentence is made from
two (2) independent clauses
AND one (1) or more dependent clauses. A complex sentence is very different from a simple sentence or a compound sentence because it makes clear which ideas are most important. A complex sentence Remember those FANBOYs? Next, we'll move on to the compound/complex sentence A compound-complex sentence has one complex sentence DC, IC/IC DC joined to a simple sentence with a conjunction (FANBOYs). Now, we're going to combine the ideas of compound and complex sentences into 1 sentence (it will be long! Think of how much more you'll be able to add to your Schaffer paragraph) To write a compound/complex sentence, we need to review the complex sentence. A complex sentence is a sentence with an independent clause and at least one dependent clause. The dependent clause is introduced a conjunctive adverb. The most common conjunctive adverbs Before, during, after Although, even though Because As long as, as soon as, as [__] as If, when, until Provided (that), so (that) Complex sentence practice Write a complex sentence Use this picture Try using one of these conjunctive adverbs Time
While Cause & Effect
So (that)
Provided (that)
Now (that) Opposition
Even though
While Conditional
Even if Remember, the pattern is DC, IC
or IC DC. You'll need to use them to create a compound/complex sentence. Remember, so (that) is a conjunctive adverb! So used as a FANBOYs connects IC, cc IC. A compound sentence looks like this:
My friend invited me to a party, but I do not want to go. Practice: Write an IC, cc IC. Use this picture of a
disgruntled teacher. The patterns will look like this:
IC DC, cc IC.
IC, cc IC DC
DC, IC, cc IC
IC, cc DC, IC You will need the list
of conjunctive adverbs... Use this picture Remember
