You are expected to write in complete
sentences this year.
Text message language is not accepted in my
classroom.
I feel so passionately about this that I might
even choose to refuse to grade any work of
yours that is not completed in this manner.
The moment your cross into room 135, turn on
your grammar switch!
Why am I doing this? Let this link below
explain my madness …

Simple sentences are composed of one
independent clause and usually have one
subject and one verb.
You can find a simple sentence if the sentence
tells two things:
1.
2.
Who or what did something. (subject)
What did it do? (predicate)

The Chiefs / will win the AFC West.
My brothers / were in the Army.
Tab and Tate / are my two sons.

A compound sentence is a sentence that has
two independent clauses connected together.
It will have two subjects and two predicates.
These sentences are usually connected by a
conjunction (and, or, but).

A complex sentence has an independent clause
and a dependent clause.
An independent clause can stand by itself as a
sentence.
A dependent clause depends on something else
to make it a complete sentence.
