           Conjunctions
 Subordinate Conjunctions connect two
  sentences that are related.
 Remember both word groups must have a
  Subject and a Verb.
Subordinate Conjunction


(When we arrived at class),
it was right on time.
   Subordinate Conjunctions
 For example, let’s take two sentences having a
   Subject and a Verb:
 I arrived at class. The fire alarm rang.
 You can connect these two sentences to show
   that there is a relationship between them:
When I arrived at class, the fire alarm rang.
 The Subordinate Conjunction (When) connects the
   Subordinate Clause “I arrived at class” to the
   Main Clause “The fire alarm rang.

    Subordinate Conjunctions
Here are the two rules you need to know about using
  commas with Subordinate Clauses:
 Use commas after subordinate clauses that
  introduce sentences.
Example: When I arrived at class, the fire alarm
rang.
Example: I like apples because they are sweet.

Notice that you do have a comma when the
Subordinate Clause starts the sentence but do not
have a comma when the Subordinate Clause does
not start the sentence.
Dropbox Assignment: In the following sentences,
underline the Subject once and put the Verbs in
Bold. Put the Subordinate Conjunction in Blue Type,
and put (parentheses around the Subordinate
Clause). Add any commas that are needed
