  2. Clause defined: • A clause is an essential part of a sentence and must contain a subject and a verb. • Clauses are the building blocks of sentences. Created by Jose J. Gonzalez, Jr. STCC

  14. One last note: • Many people think that only math is progressive in learning. In other words, if you don’t know how to multiply how can you divide? We all know this is true. But the study of English is also progressive. Because if you can’t identify a clause, how can you tell a sentence from a fragment? It is all related and you must master each step, or you will be left confused or lost later. Created by Jose J. Gonzalez, Jr. STCC
