The Anatomy of a Sentence

All Levels | Students will find, read, examine, diagram (don’t worry, we’ll help!), imitate, and draft great sentences. We’ll start small with shorter, simpler sentences until everybody is good and comfortable identifying sentence parts; then, we’ll go big, combining varied sentence structures to produce vibrant paragraphs. No project needed—use the exercises from this class to get your creativity flowing or simply to explore your love of language.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
