The Guide to Grammar and Writing: A Website for Everything Grammar
Summary : Your Go-To Grammar Resource
The Guide to Grammar and Writing website contains examples for diagramming sentences, a bank of grammar quizzes, a forum for questions and answers about language, and several additional grammar resources. After loading the website, users can click on any of the clauses, phrases, or sentences to view how that type of language would be diagrammed. In addition, users can scroll to the bottom of the page, where they can click on the “Guide to Grammar and Writing” link. By doing so, the website will load six dropdown menus that include: (1) Word & Sentence Level; (2) Essay & Research Paper Level; (3) Peripherals & PowerPoints; (4) Paragraph Level; (5) Ask Grammar, Quizzes, Search Devices; and (6) GrammarPool, Guestbook, Awards. Each dropdown menu can be clicked, and it makes several options available to users. For example, users can click the “Guide to Grammar and Writing” dropdown menu and choose the “Quizzes” option to access several dozen pre-made quizzes. In that same dropdown menu, users can click the “Ask Grammar” option to pose a question about grammar or view previously asked and answered questions.

- When teaching students how to diagram sentences, teachers can use this website as a resource and direct students to the pre-diagrammed phrases, clauses, and sentences for examples, if they need additional support.
- Once students are able to diagram sentences, teachers can have students write their own sentences and diagram them. If they need support when diagramming their own sentence, students can use the examples included in this website.
- After teaching a topic, teachers can have students complete one of the pre-made quizzes included in this website. When finished, students can take a screenshot of their results and email them to their teacher as an accountability measure.
- Once students have an understanding of the different grammar rules, they can model the quizzes used by this website and create their own in Google Forms. Students can then post the link to their quiz on a classroom website and have their peers complete it.
- If students are confused about a grammar rule, they can view the previously answered questions. If none of those questions connect to their topic, they can click the image and ask the website their own question.
