THREE STRATEGIES FOR COMBINING COMPLETE SENTENCES

2 Sentences:
Cara sang her song in front of thousands of strangers.
She remained calm the entire time.

STRATEGY 1:  FANBOYS
FOR, AND, NOR, BUT, OR, YET, SO (Coordination)
Cara sang her song in front of thousands of strangers, yet she remained
calm the entire time.

STRATEGY 2: USE A SEMICOLON
** Semicolons can be used to join two complete sentences if “, and” or “,
but” could be used.

Cara sang her song in front of thousands of strangers; she remained calm
the entire time.

STRATEGY 3: ADD A DEPENDANT THOUGHT (Subordination)
Although Cara sang her song in front of thousands of strangers, she
remained calm the entire time.

These words sometimes begin dependant thoughts:
After                                 If, even if                whatever
Although, though           in order that            when, whenever
As                                    since                        while
Because                         that, so that                
Before                            unless
Even though                 until
