Grammar Basics Workshop

Learning grammar doesn’t have to be pure memorization and regurgitation! In this one-week grammar ‘boot camp’, campers will become familiar with the rudiments of the English language using the visual art of diagramming.

Through small group challenges, quick reviews (called ‘facts practices’), and whole group diagramming relays, this course will not only familiarize students with the fundamentals of grammar, but it will also make them more confident in their ability to take complex sentences and parse them apart into small, manageable sections. We’ll start with a review of the basic grammatical elements (such as parts of speech), but we’ll delve into complex material fairly quickly. If such intellectual heights scare you, fear not! This course is appropriate for all levels of knowledge and understanding. After all, the best time to get a grapple on grammar may have been ten years ago—but the second-best time is now!
