Activity Purpose/ Summary:
We started the lesson by writing an examination about the previous topic, which included the knowledge about using idioms correctly. After finishing the exams, we went over to the topic “Independent and dependent clauses.” First of all, we described the differences between these two clauses and then we underlined them with some examples.

Personnel Input:
We were able to give the students a better understanding of English grammar by explaining the topic of “dependent and independent clauses.” An independent clause contains both a subject and a verb, and a single independent clause is the simplest form of a sentence. You can also combine two or more independent clauses by using a coordinating conjunction (for example: but, and, for, or, yet…). A dependent clause needs to join another independent clause to be correct. You can connect these two sentences by using a subordinating conjunction (for example: if, because, before/after, once, which…).

The students gained a deeper understanding of English grammar and how to structure sentences. The boys performed quite well in the examinations.

Unanticipated Achievements:
None of the students failed the examinations, and at the end of the lesson, everyone was able to give an example for each of the clauses.
