Nichole, your first sentence adds a dependent clause rather than a phrase. Your second sentence adds a phrase rather than a dependent clause. Your third sentence adds a dependent clause rather than an independent clause.

Brad, your second sentence adds a prepositional phrase (very much like the first sentence) rather than a dependent clause.
