My daughter has some homework in which she has to identify independent clauses and subordinate clauses as well as indentifying whether the sentence is simple, complex, or compound. I can help her with the last part, but don't know how to help her with the subordinate clauses and independent clauses. The sentences are so dang long! For example, the first one is: "Central-Phenix City's lunchroom was full Wednesday to witness one of Ron Nelson's final duties as football coach for the Red Devils as nine players signed letter of intent to play college football." HELP!
