An independent clause is a group of words with a subject and verb that can stand alone.
Examples of independent clauses:
The student artist showed his work to the teacher.
She praised him.
She sat under the tree munching on an apple.
A dependent clause can not stand alone, although it has a subject and verb.
Examples of dependent clauses:
when the student artist showed his work to the teacher
although she praised him
who is my best friend
while lazily watching the clouds
You can combine independent and dependent clauses this way.
When the student artist showed his work to the teacher, she praised him.
She sat under the tree munching on an apple while lazily watching the clouds.
Mary who is my best friend, is captain of the cheerleaders.
She sat under the tree munching on an apple while she lazily watched the clouds.
