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:
