Class Experience

A sentence diagram is a way to represent the structure of a sentence graphically, showing how words in a sentence function and relate to each other. The process promotes critical thinking, writing, grammar, and editing skills.  Kitty Burns Florey sums it up well; "When you diagram a sentence, those things are always in that relation to each other. It always makes the same kind of picture. And supposedly, it makes it easier for kids who are learning to write, learning to use correct English."
Why take on the challenge of sentence diagramming? It allows students to clarify their thinking, fix their sentences, and put grammar to use in a different way. Putting all of the words of a sentence on a diagram enables learners to identify the logical connections between different parts of the sentence.  From my own personal teaching experience, learning diagram sentences has allowed an average grammar student to become an exceptional grammar student.

My educational goal is to enable your student to become engaged in grammar. By tapping into your learner's enthusiasm, they are active and engaged in their learning process. I have taught over 4,000 Outschool students, and logged more than 800 Outschool teaching hours, in engaging, educational, and inspiring themed English Language courses. I am a certified Tennessee K-6th grade teacher. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts in English, Communications, and Print Media. You will find more about my Outschool teaching journey on various media outlets, including CBS New York, Business Insider, and the American Board for Teacher Excellence.
Students will need writing paper, pen or pencil or may use a whiteboard for diagramming.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be active participants in the class. We diagram in groups, independently, and collectively. Outschoolers are asked to show their work during our live class. By doing so, the instructor is able to verify student understanding. Students who take this course with a camera off will be asked to show their work or verbally display an understanding of our diagramming topics. 
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
