This is a PowerPoint presentation that I made to accompany my teaching of Compound 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 compound sentences
3. Practice identifying compound sentences and simple sentences in example sentences
4. Proofreading to find errors in punctuation using compound sentences
The presentation is 38 slides and takes one 45-minute class period.
