Diagramming sentences remains the single best way to visualize and understand English grammar. DiaGrammar brings this powerful learning tool into the 21st century with pre-drawn, color-coded diagrams.
- Diagramming automatically gives students the vocabulary to talk about their own sentences.
- No need for grammar lectures or discussions. Each concept is fully explained and illustrated by the diagrams.
- Every level of DiaGrammar serves as a review of all the previous levels. Concepts learned at the start are reviewed and reinforced up to 25 times by the end.
- Full answer keys are found online, not in the workbook, to encourage their appropriate use.
- DiaGrammar can be used individually or in groups, in or out of the classroom. It’s a grammar activity that students will actually enjoy.
- Companion worksheets and PowerPoint slides found online make engaging class activities.
- Share questions or ideas with the author and other instructors by email or on the DiaGrammar Facebook page.
DiaGrammar makes learning grammar fun and easy for both students and teachers. There are many ways to use this system with your students, in or out of the classroom.
- Pages are perforated for easy collection. Or students can check their own work using the online answer keys. DiaGrammar also makes a great group activity in class.
- The Table of Contents doubles as a Progress Tracker. The class could hold a Sentence Pro party or celebrate Sentence Master Day when all the students reach that level.
- The supplemental worksheets found at writing-with-confidence.org/DiaGrammar are an easy way to review and solidify concepts. They allow students to practice the grammar concepts in sentences that they write themselves.
- For a fun class review, use the supplemental slides found at writing-with-confidence.org/DiaGrammar. They contain challenging review questions and blank diagrams that the class can fill in together.
In whatever ways you choose to use DiaGrammar, have fun with it. Students will absorb the sentence structure and grammar terms just from completing the diagrams, with no need for lengthy lectures or discussion.
