This is a fully resourced lesson that teaches students how to use coordinating conjunctions to combine simple sentences and form compound sentences.
*NOTE: Instead of using the American acronym FANBOYS in this lesson, I have substituted the more practical TANBOYS (most American dictionaries do not recognise 'then' as a coordinating conjunction; they insist that one should say 'and then' when linking two events in order. The British council and most UK dictionaries, however, do identify 'then' as a coordinating conjunction. Also, although 'for' is recognised as a coordinating conjunction on both sides of the Atlantic, it is almost never used in contemporary writing. As this is a grammar-for-writing rather than a grammar-for-reading lesson, I have chosen to include 'then' in place of the rather archaic 'for' in the American-based acronym, thus 'TANBOYS'). With this in mind, if you prefer to use FANBOYS you may wish to hide, delete or replace the slide in the powerpoint in which I have listed the coordinating conjunctions most commonly used in the UK.
