Class Description.

We will learn some basic parts of speech, their definitions, their functions, some examples of each, and how to use them.

This is a topic I often have to teach to junior and senior high school students taking the SAT and ACT. But, beyond the tests, knowing the parts of speech is important for good reading, writing, and thinking. It helps everyone.

Through lecture, interactive discussion, and interactive work, we will cover:
And more (maybe some sentence diagramming), time permitting.

Come prepared to listen, take notes, answer some questions, ask some questions, do some work, and start to make a life-long habit of clear communication, writing, and thinking.

Learning Goals.
To know the parts of speech.
Te be able to identify parts of speech in writing and speech.
To learn some skills of good thinking and logic.

“My daughter’s learning experience with Mr. Gold was excellent. The class was very interactive and informative. There were class note summaries and practices provided by Mr. Gold after each class. To learn about the techniques of sentence diagramming would help kids better read and write. My daughter benefited a lot from this class. Highly recommended.”

“This was a great introduction to sentence diagramming for my son. Mr Gold provided a lot of great resources as follow up to this class. Very helpful!”
–Jenni C., parent, about Outschool class “Sentence Diagramming: Lesson 1,” 17 Aug 2020

“My son (14) took two pages of notes and seemed to learn grammar faster in the session than I could have possibly taught him myself! Probably because it’s easier to listen to someone (anyone, really) who isn’t your parent. Mr. Gold was engaging and informative, and sent not only one follow-up email (a TY to attendees, with some encouragement and advice) but two follow-up emails (the second had two pages of additional work students could do to practice diagramming sentences). I’d say anyone could benefit from this class; I know my son did because I’ve seen little in his notebooks/binders over the years from school covering grammar/parts of speech, with the exception of Spanish class.”

“My son has nothing but good things to say about this class. He learned a lot!”
–Laura B., parent, about Outschool class “Sentence Diagramming: Lesson 1,” 21 Jun 2020

“My son really enjoys this class. He has taken Diagramming 1-3 so far, and he wants to keep going! The teacher takes the full hour and makes the examples challenging enough to keep the kids on their toes while still learning. He also gave follow up notes and practice sentences for my son to continue working on, even when class was done. Amazing!”
