Reflection: Checks for Understanding Reviewing Independent and Dependent Clauses in Preparation for a Unit Assessment . - Section 2: Building Knowledge


I found that some students remembered the term "dependent markers" and no one remembered "coordinating conjunctions." I think the reason is that "dependent markers" makes more sense to them and I like using it just for the sake of clarity. "Dependent markers" create dependent clauses and "subordinating conjunctions" does not express the function in a sentence as concretely.  I've decided to use both but emphasize why "dependent markers" says what it means.  What do you think?

  Subordinating Conjunction or Dependent Markers?
