  • 1. Subordinating & Coordinating Conjunctions
  • 2. Importance
    • Subordinating & coordinating conjunctions are important because they join different clauses to form long, well constructed sentences.
  • 3. What is a clause?
    • An independent clause is a phrase that can stand alone as it’s own sentence.
      • The car is red.
    • A dependent clause is a phrase that needs to have another one in order to make it a complete sentence.
      • When the kids drove the car.
  • 4. When to use Coordinating Conjunctions
    • Use it to join independent clauses, phrases, and individual words.
    • “ And”, “but”, “or”, “nor”, “so”, or “yet” can be used.
  • 5. Examples of Coordinating Conjunctions
    • She picked daffodils and sunflowers, which are usually yellow.
    • I wanted to go over my friends house but I had a lot of homework.
  • 6. When to use Subordinate Conjunctions
    • Introduces a dependent clause and shows the relationship between the dependent and independent clauses.
    • Common conjunctions are “after”, “although”, “as”, “because”, “before”, “how”, “if” and “once”.
