The Weekly Text: September 11, 2015

On this sad anniversary, I am at work, right next to Ground Zero, on Trinity Place between Cedar and Thames in Lower Manhattan.

Here are five parsing sentences worksheets that you might find helpful in teaching your students a variety of things: what nouns are, what the parts of a complete sentence are, how to pick sentences apart by identifying their constituent parts, and how those parts relate to one another syntactically.

This is the first time I’ve posted parsing sentences worksheets, so I attach the Parsing Sentences Worksheets Users’ Manual. If you haven’t previously used worksheets from Mark’s Text Terminal, and you’re wondering why there are asterisks where subject nouns and pronouns should be, take a quick look at the About Weekly Texts page linked to just above the photo.

I hope you find this material useful, and I’d be grateful if you let me know how you used it, or how it worked with the students you teach, or both.
