Mr. Georges was a master teacher. His system of teaching grammar to high school juniors and seniors was developed over 35 years. He used a unique method: students memorized basic rules of grammar, then examined samples of writing for "rules violated."
Do you remember these rules?

  • A sentence must have a subject and a verb.
  • A verb must agree with its subject in person and number.
  • A pronoun must have a specific, stated antecedent.
  • An introductory prepositional phrase must refer to the subject of the clause which contains the phrase.
  • A modifer must be placed as close as possible to the word it describes.
