Grammar Webquest by Murriel Mapa

There are many different ways to convey a thought, help someone understand a concept, or just communicate with someone. Writing is just one of the ways that this is achieved. Writers have many tools that help them express their ideas and thoughts. The English language has numerous tools that help them do this. Without these tools that we use today, we would never evolve from cave dwellers to the sophisticated and eloquent speakers we are today. The English language dates all the way back to 450 AD, where "Old English" was established, soon after began "Modern English". The history of English is vital in understanding just how much we, as a society, have progressed. An example of this progression is in the use of adjectives and adverbs. Adjectives and adverbs are used in almost every piece of writing; therefore, are very important to understand. The English language requires sentences that include subjects and verbs, which are important to identify because they almost always cooperate together. The verb is referring to the subject, and the subject is performing the verb. This link on how to classify subjects and verbs is very helpful, and when you’re confident in your abilities to recognize the two, there is a quiz at the end of the website, see how well you do!
