IEW --who/which clause and because clause -- Examples
Posted 04 April 2008 - 08:23 AM
I am trying to help my dd revise a story and I happened upon a IEW lesson plan online. I have typed out the main points for use to examine, but I want to make sure I am on the same page as he is with regard to the who/which clause and the because clause.
Anyone willing to give me some examples for these two clauses?
I really like what I see with IEW and will probably order the program for next year.
Thanks for your help.

"I hit my head because I was not looking where I was going."
The who/which adds additional information about a noun.
"The king, who was older than the hills, rode out to battle.

use who when referring to a person; use which when referring to a thing
So.... The old man, who lost his keen vision long ago, pulled his glasses from his shirt pocket and began to read.
OR.... She read the book, which was less than an inch thick, in no time at all.
