I enjoy how this lesson makes good use of images and text sizes/boldness to draw attention to the information being delivered. Key terms are defined and words are explained so that students will not have as many issues with trying to interpret those descriptors. The reviews are helpful in making sure that you haven't missed anything before you build on that scaffolding. The quizzes also have feedback on why answers are right or wrong, which can help students to better build their skills with a chance to re-take quizzes if they didn't feel great after finishing. One good touch to the lesson is that the arrows to proceed are scattered. This ensures that anyone taking the lesson can't just click through it! Once the students are done it is also nice that they have a copy of the notes.

This is a nicely done lesson.  I like the simple backgroud and complimenting colors you chose.  You did a nice job fully explaining the different types of clauses.  I especially liked the way you used analogy to connect this difficult to explain topic to real life.  That definitely made it clear.  Your scaffolding was also well done.  By defining the terms first and then providing examples, you give the students a chance to bite off small pieces.  I will definitely be able to use this in class.
