Check Out These Helpful Grammar Sites!
I have found that even English teachers tend to search for answers on the web. These particular sites have been useful for daily grammar tips, clarification, and helping students to better understand grammar and writing concepts. Of course, the very best way to improve your communication skills is to READ. Find SOMETHING you like at the CHS library; our famous librarian will even be glad to order you books that we may not have in stock!
I made this sheet up for those of you who like to have a quick chart handy. Of course, you can use this on homework or when writing a paper. Unfortunately, you can't use it for taking quizzes. I guess you'll have to memorize the chart at the bottom of this handout, then, huh?!
