English 1, 2, Honors: Dolly Semicolons

Today, students took the 1.19 OGT skills notes:

Use a semicolon to join two or more complete sentences not connected by a coordinating conjunction. Coordinating conjunctions are and, but, or, nor, for, so, and yet.

John went to the store; he forgot to buy bread.

Use a semicolon before a conjunctive adverb when the word connects two complete sentences in a compound sentence. Conjunctive adverbs include however, in addition, instead, for example, and therefore.

John went to the store; however, he forgot to buy bread.

Then, students responded to journal 33:

“Find out who you are and do it on purpose.”  –Dolly Parton; Write two  questions on your own for this quote.  Answer them in extended response format.

Finally, students read independently.  If you were absent, read independently for 20 minutes and submit a half-page summary of your reading for credit. 



Happy learning,
