Transcript of Tuesday 11.10.15
Adverb clauses are subordinate clauses (the kind that
can't stand alone
, remember?) that modify(think: give more information about) a
verb, an adjective, or another adverb.
Do Now: TOPIC
This week's topic is INTELLIGENCE.
Write down something you already know/think/feel about intelligence.
Independent Clauses- are clauses that are also sentences; they can stand alone; they express a complete thought in addition to having a subject and a verb
Copy the quote completely and accurately, including the title and author name. Then, respond in a way that changes the world.
In order to come closer to our goal of being able to identify, understand, and exemplify VERBALS( L.8.1) we need to do some work with ADVERB CLAUSES.
This type of clause has a subject and a verb, but
cannot stand alone
. It cannot stand alone because the addition of other words or ideas make the clause incomplete- it doesn't express a complete thought.
Here are some examples:
"Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings."
First, we'll talk about clauses. (Yay!!!)
A clause is a group of words with its own subject and verb- it doesn't necessarily have to be a sentence. A sentence is the same, but it also expresses a complete thought.
"I bought a car"=clause
"in the car"= not a clause (a phrase) because there is no verb
"Because I ran to the field"- this is a clause (group of words- check; own subject and verb- check) but it doesn't express a complete thought, which makes it not a sentence.
More About Clauses
"My brother is the best"= independent clause
"When I go home"= clause,
When I go home
After the movie is over
Because I said so
Punctuation always follows the clause. Use a period when at the end of a sentence, a comma when at the beginning.
Words that introduce adverb clauses are called
when, after, before, since, although, because.

Here's a strategy to use for the activity today:
Read the question and try to answer it before you look at the answer choices.
Read all of the choices.
Eliminate answers you know are not correct.
Choose the correct answer.
