Gutenberg Exchange Lesson Twelve: Analyzing Complex
There is an alternative version of lesson 12 which does not emphasize
HTML coding. We recommend that you switch
to the NO-HTML version unless you are in an advanced class.
Computer Literacy Objectives:
In this lesson you will work with
HTML links, and you will learn how to make indentations.
Writing Objectives: You will learn how to analyze complex
sentences by naming their structures and putting them into a
In this lesson, you will download a page of complex sentences, you
will identify the main clause and name the free modifiers, you will
put links from these structures to pages explaining them, and you
will arrange the sentences in a schematic pattern using HTML coding.

- Your assignment is to:
- Save to disk the pages that contain explanations of
the free modifiers.
- Save to disk the page containing
two schematized sentences.
- Open the schematized list document in Notepad and complete the
schematizing and naming process exemplified in the
first two sentences, putting in links to the pages that
explain the structures. Notice that the link to the explanations
for main clauses and subordinate clauses is an "file#name"
link. Also notice that an un-numbered list command "ul"
without the "li" commands have been used to create indentations
(view the source document for companal.html).
- Load the completed and saved HTM file in Netscape and
test the links.
- Have a classmate check your page and links.
- Print out the completed Netscape version of your
schematized sentences, put your name on it, and hand it in.
- When you have completed the assignment, close your open programs
