Homework 19.09.19

LI: to use relative clauses

 

In class, we have been working on using relative pronouns (who, which, where, that, whose) to add a relative clause to our sentence. 

Pick 3 of the relative pronouns and use each one in a sentence about Macbeth or Lady Macbeth.

Remember - 'who' comes after a person/animal, 'which'/'that' are used after an object/thing, 'whose' is used to show possession and 'where' is used after a place.

Example: Macbeth, whose aspirations had changed drastically, frantically wrote a letter to his wife.
