Ready-to-teach and easily adaptable 1 hour lesson to teach simple/compound sentences and FANBOYS connectives. This lesson breaks down the difference between independent and dependent clauses and then prompts students to compose their own simple and compound sentences. This lesson includes a very engaging extension task whereby students correct the punctuation in 'Human' by Rag'n'Bone Man. This activity really pushes them to consider what is and isn't an independent clause and the music means that students find it really engaging.
This lesson was designed for middle school, but it could easily be adapted for key high school.
