Summary The Fading Art of Diagramming Sentences

This article is referring to the educational technique of Diagramming sentences. It became to a halt when people in the National Council of Teachers of English saw that it made learning how to write a sentence harder. Someone was quoted in the article saying on top of learning the usual things of what goes in a sentence they would have to learn how to structure it in the diagram also. In 1985 it was declared a repetitive grammar exercise.
