how do you diagram: The famous charter oak of Hartford, Connecticut, was blown down; but a monument was put in its place
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).
How do u diagram the sentence tony ate his dinner and went to bed early
Could you diagram the sentence"The man is my father."
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.Posted by Kara Monroe on 10/23/2007 12:00:00 AM Reply
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...
