Nathan was late for lunch. In order to have a complete sentence, you must have:
1. A subject
2. A verb
3. A complete thought Sometimes, we are missing words.
Example: The teacher in our class, Ms. Lockett.
What's missing? Fix the sentence in your notes. Sometimes we add words to sentences that make them fragments.
Example: Because Bill Clinton spoke eloquently at the DNC. Because Bill Clinton spoke so eloquently at the DNC, he swayed the voters. There are words that turn
sentences into fragments if
you're not careful. These
are called AWUBIS words. Here are some common AWUBIS words:
As if, although, when, while,
whenever, unless, until, because
before, if, since, so
Write the AWUBIS words
in the chart on your notes. AWUBIS words can ruin a sentence
