PUNCTUATION FOR THE END OF THE THOUGHT (8 clock hours - 0.8 CEUs)
You may only miss one (1) live session in order to receive credit for this class. Missed sessions must be watched and summarized in writing.
When a thought ends, there are so many choices. Often you need a period or a question mark, but even this takes thought sometimes. Then there is the semicolon, which is very correct in certain sentences, depending on what follows. Then there is the dash – even the ellipsis at times. Join us to look at those occasions where we must make the choice.

THE DEPENDENT AND INDEPENDENT CLAUSE (10 clock hours - 1 full CEU)
You may only miss up to two (2) live sessions in order to receive credit for this class. Missed sessions must be watched and summarized in writing.
Working with the language is easier all around when you understand independent and dependent clauses and how they are the same and how they are different, how they function, and how they are punctuated. What happens when there are five independent clauses in a row with “and” in between? Is there one set of rules for all dependent clauses? Does where the clause is in the sentence make a difference? What about a clause right after the conjunction? Is there one comma for the clause or commas around it or no commas? Join us for answers to these questions and many more.
