The Dependent and Independent Clause
Live with Margie Wakeman Wells
This is a LIVE course with Margie.
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.
