Grammar Refresher for the Forgetful Student

    A lesson on the word 'do', which is featured as a short video on YouTube. The purpose of the video is to show the viewer how to use the verb 'do' properly in a sentence. In fact, the host shows the viewers how to use the negative form of the word, such as "I don't have a cat or he doesn't like cats." This is a basic grammar video that would be perfect for high school students.

    Short YouTube video of a lesson on how to use have, has, and had. In fact, the host has a whiteboard where she is showing the viewers examples of how to use the words in sentences. The host discusses past and present tense along with singular words. Even through the video is a little boring, it becomes exciting every time the viewer hears police sirens in the background.

    English Grammar & Punctuation Quick Study Guide is a great tool for high school and college students; I actually used different types of guides when I was in college, which allowed me to review information quickly. In fact, this guide goes over different parts of grammar such as the parts of speech, prefixes, suffixes, and antonyms.

    This book is available on Amazon.com and it would be a good resource for any age group. In fact, it's easy to use and it would be a good tool for writers to refer to before allowing anyone to see their writing. The book includes several sections, which are: the parts of speech, irregular nouns and verbs, commonly confused and misused words, capitalization, contractions, compound words, idioms, abbreviations, punctuation, spelling and acronyms.
