Hey all you DGPers! I know you've been missing it and are likely feeling a bit insecure that 1st, 3rd, and 4th periods have all passed and you have not. :( That said, it's been a while since you've been given an opportunity. In fact, it's been so long that maybe you've forgotten all that you've learned.
Well have no fear! Mr. Reiser took the English 11 classes back to the basics since they had not been doing their homework and desperately needed it. They tasted sweet success, scoring over 82% as a class (both of them), which was .4% higher than 1st period. He used a way back to basics approach that is available to you too.
Go to http://www.german-latin-english.com/diagrams.htm and work through the The Basics of Sentence Diagramming (Part One and Part Two). You might also find the Anatomy of a Sentence to be helpful.
Do you think you can do this one? What if I just flat out told you it would be on the test? Kidding.
Start using this in conjunction with your DGP packet to master the structure of a sentence. Your test will be shortly, very shortly, after Spring Break.
