Diagramming helps students understand sentence structure and the different parts of speech. Book 2 builds on the diagramming skills taught in Book 1 and introduces appositive phrases, the different kinds of sentences, noun clauses, and more. Each lesson describes the specific structure under study, gives examples, and provides sentences for diagramming practice. Students are then challenged to generate their own sentences to fit the models. Even teachers unfamiliar with the diagramming process will find the step-by-step format easy to follow and use to instruct students. Hands-on practice with grammar strategies such as diagramming and sentence variety is a step in the right direction for proficiency in writing and oral communication.
