I was helping my ds figure out why sentences were wrong on his PSAT study guide.  I actually used sentence diagramming in on one of them to show why the sentence didn't work.  The elusive "WHY" has been answered!  Off to teach grammar and diagramming to the 7th grader!

Yay!  We've found that it helped my kids immensely when breaking down a foreign language translation or a complex sentence.

My oldest DS used diagramming without prompting to decipher the meaning in one of the trickier bits of one of Paul's letters to the churches in Scripture (whew, Paul used a lot of clauses!) That's when I became a sentence diagramming advocate! Lol

Christians, especially those using the KJV, are more likely to see the use of diagramming.
