Product Description

On each page is one copy-ready diagramming challenge for students along with the completed diagram on the next page. Each sentence is repeated multiple times on one page so that teachers can easily photocopy that page and cut apart the sentences for distribution to students. I use weekly “Mental Floss for extra credit and extended study of grammatical and syntactic structure—one per week beginning early in Quarter 2 (mid-November) give or take a shortened school week or a holiday vacation. I evaluate student progress on the weekends and return them on Mondays along with the posting of a new challenge. I award points and fractions of points according to completeness in line with the concepts we’ve been studying in class. Enjoy the challenges!

The diagrams in this book utilize the Reed and Kellogg system. Teachers may photocopy sentences and diagrams in this book for free distribution to their students. All other rights are reserved by the author.
