This is a PowerPoint presentation that I made to accompany my teaching of Complex Sentences using Houghton Mifflin's English Grade 8, BUT you do not need the book for this lesson. Included in the PowerPoint are:
2. Guided Notes/Explanation of independent clauses, dependent/subordinate clauses, subordinating conjunctions, and complex sentences
3. Practice identifying subordinating conjunctions and subordinate clauses in complex sentences
4. Practice differentiating between simple, compound, and complex sentences
The presentation is 41 slides and takes one 45-minute class period.
