Grammar and Diagramming Sentences focuses on teaching the basics of diagramming by taking students step-by-step through the process, presenting simple concepts initially, and then building on those concepts until the student feels comfortable diagramming detailed compound-complex constructions. This systematic approach is not only easy for students to grasp, but it also helps build their confidence in learning a grammar technique that isn’t frequently taught in schools today.

A diagnostic exam at the beginning of the text allows students to determine their aptitude for diagramming.
Each chapter opens with a brief introduction of the major topics to be covered, followed by straightforward, easy-to-understand examples and illustrations. Each chapter provides ample opportunity for practice with activities involving 40-60 problems. And finally, each chapter includes a review summarizing the key points and major rules presented.
Sequential review tests occur after every two chapters. Although these tests cover in detail the two previous chapters, they also reassess skills from all preceding chapters.
A mastery exam at the end of the text provides students a measurement tool to judge skills they have attained.
For extra support and easy reference, an answer key and glossary are provided for students as they learn and master diagramming skills.
