Open Access Graduate Research Paper


Sentence diagraming could be an appropriate strategy used in teaching and reinforcing the concept of sentence structure to seventh grade language arts students. The goal of using appropriate teaching-learning strategies has been important to educators for many years (Levin, 1986). In pursuing this goal, there needs to be "matching" between the strategy selected and the characteristics of the learner at a given developmental stage; the match must be appropriate if the learner is to receive benefit from the teaching technique (Levin, 1986). According to Levin's study, both the specific skills and the competencies of the learner should be the central focus in selecting and developing teaching strategies.
