Clauses, phrases, commas, and more!

**If you go onto Membean, an assessment will pop-up for you. PLEASE DO NOT COMPLETE IT AT HOME.** I want to watch the assessment the first time, so I will be having you complete it in class tomorrow. The rest of the week will include a review of dependent and independent clauses, when to use commas, semi-colons, and colons, as well as adjectives and short stories. You won't have an at-home reading assignment until next week. Feel free to read one of the sequels to the books we have read or try one that you heard a peer talk about!

Please return your sci-fi/fantasy novels to the classroom.
