Gutenberg Exchange Lesson 9a: Relative Clauses
Computer Literacy Objectives: This version of Lesson 9 asks
you to continue working with wordprocessing. It does NOT introduce
you to HTML. If you wish, you can
switch to the HTML version. (Recommended

In this lesson, you will learn about relative clauses, you will down load
a file containing model sentences, and you will imitate the sentences
contained in that file.

to this page.

Save it to disk by clicking on the "File" option in the upper left corner
of the Netscape screen and selecting the "Save as" option.
- After saving the sample relative clauses to disk, open your
word processor anddload the file. Your word processor will probably ask you
what kind of document it is. It is a "Text" document, or an "ASCii"
- Delete all of the HTML coding (commands inside < and >),
leaving the text of "sample relative clauses."
- Under each sentence, type in an imitation of the sentence, using
your own words but employing relative clauses as the model sentence
- When you have imitated all of the sentences, go through the text,
making the format clear, and putting your name and section number on it.
- Have a classmate check your work.
