Abstract

It is the purpose of this study to compare two methods of teaching selected aspects of English grammar--grammatical definitions reinforced by exercises and the diagramming of sentences and grammatical definitions as the basis of teaching composition--to ascertain whether or not one will produce better results than the other on a standardized grammar test, when used with two groups of paired ninth-graders matched according to age, sex, intelligence, and reading ability.
