Teaching Sentence Diagramming as Story Telling

In his book Teaching as Story Telling, Kieran Egan encourages teachers to incorporate imaginative story-telling techniques into our lessons. But how can we teach grammar as a story? How can diagramming sentences spark the imagination? The aim of this workshop is to explore how to set up the task of diagramming sentences as a mystery to be explored. Students will delight in the challenges of road-mapping sentences and solidify their understanding of the structure of language when it begins in wonder.
