how do you diagram: The famous charter oak of Hartford, Connecticut, was blown down; but a monument was put in its place

0 Comments
  • oak = subject (The, famous, charter = adjectives...of Hartford, Connecticut = prep.phrase used as adjective to modify oak)

    was blown = verb (down = adverb)

    but = conjunction

    monument = subject (a = adjective that modifies monument).

    was put = verb (in its place = prep.phrase that modifies was put).

If you make a mistake (for instance on slide 21 of 33) you have no way to get out of it or to back up. You have to exit the object and start over again.

Thank goodness SOMEBODY

still thinks teaching diagramming is important!

I would like to see you change a couple of sentences to add extra lines for choices--otherwise they just keep guessing...

This is a great tutorial. But the commands have been broken for a while and I'm not sure why they've not been fixed. Please bring it back so I can use it with my students!
