Sentence Diagramming

Here is a nicely done instructional video on sentence diagramming. It's part of a series on this topic.

What really jazzes me about this series is the simplicity: these are just a bunch of videos...but because of the content, your brain is compelled to apply the lessons as you go...making them even more powerful!

The other interesting thing is that by reading the comments, it's clear that these are very helpful to a number of learners.

I can think of a handful of ways this could be improved instructionally, but as components of learning, these simple explanations are excellent!
