What is the Writing Process?
We've seen that coordinating conjunctions, the small words that make up FANBOYS, can help us "glue" sentences together. This is important because it allows us to create sentence variety.
Why is "variety" important?
Sentence variety is a powerful way to keep the reader interested. And it is one of the Six Traits of Writing we will work on all year.
But what "glue" do you use when one complete thought explains the other complete thought?
1. Find the word list and printables from the previous lesson. Subordinate conjunctions are discussed there. Use the sheets to help you follow along.
2. Watch the videos. The first video will help you understand the second video, so in a way, these are like subordinating conjunctions!
3. You may need to watch the videos many times to fully understand. Not to worry. We will help you along the way.
