Product Description:

There's a certain amount of controversy over the necessity or even wisdom of diagramming sentences. Many insist it just isn't necessary for developing a good working use of grammar. I look at it a little differently. Diagramming is a graphic organizer; a tool to help us understand the relationship of words in a sentence, and thus, to help us understand our language and improve our communication skills. That being the case, what better way to "kill two birds with one stone" than to use sentences from Scripture as diagramming practice and models? In the step-by-step analysis that diagramming requires, we can come to a much richer understanding of the meaning of Scripture. The language of the KJV (the version of the Bible used in this study) can be a bit daunting, which is why the author starts at the very beginning. She reviews each part of speech (i.e. nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, etc.) as well as the various parts of a sentence (subject, verbs, direct objects, etc.), teaching sentence patterns. She then builds precept upon precept, giving the student diagrammed examples, practice sentences, and ultimately tests. (Correct diagrams for all practice and test sentences are in the back of the book.) When the going gets tough and complicated (i.e. noun or adjective clauses), the author provides in-depth instruction as well as "helps" such as the "signal words" that introduce noun clauses. By the way, this is the point at which the impact of the Bible content is most realized. Sorting through a sentence in order to diagram it becomes a function of pondering God's Word. The book is a worktext with plenty of space and diagram frameworks provided. 329 pgs. pb ~ Janice

Category Description for Diagramming Sentences:

Learning how to diagram sentences can really help students visualize how the different parts of speech work together to form sentences. However, this skill isn't always included in English books. This workbook provides a wonderful supplement to any curriculum. It covers sentence diagramming from easy to challenging, one step at a time. After reading simple explanations and seeing examples, students practice with similar sentences. The worksheets start with just subjects and predicates and then progress to adjectives, adverbs, direct and indirect objects, appositives, interjections, prepositional phrases, participles, and gerunds. Reviews are scattered throughout, which can be used as quizzes or test if desired. The worksheets are perforated and reproducible. Answers included, 46 pages. - Melissa

I wanted a more advanced diagramming workbook, and figured the scriptures were a worthy topic to diagram.

So do you buy both this textbook and the other one which is spiral bound. I can't see where one is labeled Teachers and the other Students; so is it textbook & workbook? They look the same except for binding and I am confused.

BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure I understand your question. Diagramming the Scriptures (#043366) is a single paperback item. The book is a worktext with plenty of space and diagram frameworks provided.
This is very nice. May I reproduce it for each of my classes? I am a missionary teacher in Thailand. Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: The copyright of this book does not allow for reproducing its pages. You might check with the publisher - Xulon Press. They might make exceptions for a missionary situation.
