It’s time for me to let out my inner geek…Back in the day I learned to diagram sentences from my junior high teacher. In addition to that, I remember having to memorize 35 prepositions. I wasn’t too happy to do all the hard work that went into learning English grammar. Today, I’m very thankful. Diagramming sentences really helped me understand all the parts of a sentence in a logical manner and has helped me to become a better writer.
I recently stumbled upon a video that touches on diagramming sentences. It’s been so long since I’ve done this and brought back some interesting memories. From what I understand, it’s been a long time since sentence diagramming has been taught in schools.
How about you…have you ever diagrammed sentences? If so, how did you like it?
