Annotated Reed-Kellogg sentence diagrams are utilized extensively throughout the manual to enhance instruction. (The manual features over 300 diagrams.)


Diagrams support and enhance instruction. At this point in the course, students have studied the major parts of speech: nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and are fairly competent with the five noun uses. They have the ornaments. Now it's just a matter of hanging them on the tree.


Why make diagramming difficult? IT'S FUN! After providing the trees, you'll be amazed how fast they become decorated. Syntax For Sailors provides a similar resource tree and answer key for every diagramming exercise in the manual.


Diagrams support and enhance instruction. Notice how easy it is to tell the difference between a predicate nominative and a direct object complement after reviewing the diagrams provided with the explanation. Syntax for Sailors uses diagrams extensively to support instructional objectives. They're everywhere!
