English Grammar Revolution

Here we are picking raspberries from our neighbor's garden. I love that this photo is an explosion of green!

In this newsletter, rather than teach you a grammar lesson, I'm sharing a few grammar resources that I find valuable.

Happy Learning,

Elizabeth O'Brien

Get Smart Grammar Revolution Program

I want to let you know how grateful we are for your grammar course. It saves us a huge amount of class time and, having looked around for some time, we think it's the best grammar course on the web.

A List of Resources For You

Here are a few resources that I've benefited from over the years. I thought that they might be able to help you as well.

  • Ebook - English Verb Tenses: An Informal But Extensive Reference If you've ever wanted to learn more about verb tenses, you'll appreciate this downloadable free ebook from Kent Uchiyama of Chabot College.

  • Website - Reed-Kellogg Diagrammer Would you like to see your sentences diagrammed automatically? This online diagrammer does it for you. This page describes how to use it.

  • Website - The Punctuation Guide I used to think that punctuation was a really boring topic, but as I learn more and more about it, I'm finding it more and more interesting. This site is a great resource for American punctuation rules.

  • Book - The War Against Grammar David discovered this fascinating gem of a book back when we were preparing to make our documentary on grammar education. Here's the book's synopsis:
      How can we improve the verbal skills of American students? How can we strengthen them as readers and writers? How can we best prepare America's youth to succeed in the study of a foreign language? According to Classics professor David Mulroy, the most important answer is grammar! Whether championing the grammatical analysis of phrases and clauses or arguing for the vital importance of sentence diagramming, Mulroy offers a lucid, learned, passionate account of the history, importance, and value of grammar.

    If you'd like to learn how to diagram sentences, you can start here.

    Have a wonderful week!
