Direct Instruction
There were two learning intentions for this lesson.
1) Identify independent and dependent clauses.
2) Identify the subject and the predicate
This lesson was precursor to a lesson on complex sentences. In order to understand complex sentences kids had to have a good understanding on independent and dependent clauses.  The episode starts with the kids spotting the difference between two different clauses. This then leads into a whole class lesson about clauses in particular independent clauses. The video wraps up with footage of the children participating in the subject/predicate activity and also features children working on their presentations.

Reflection/Next steps
Most of the class were confident in identifying the subject and predicate by the end of the lessons which was great to see. The kids enjoyed the subject/predicate activity and I think this helped a lot in cementing the difference between the subject and predicate for them. While the children had a good understanding of subject and predicate there is still a need for further exploration of independent and dependent clauses. I also didn't spend enough time looking at what a clause actually is so this will need to be reinforced at a later date as well.
