Prepositions Illustrated

Here above are a few sample handmade responses from the fourth time students in this advanced English course on grammar have used handmade responses for drawing their responses to a reading assignment.  In this case, chapter 6 of Constance Hale’s Sin and Syntax on prepositions.

The purpose of the handmade response is to promote reading engagement so that students will be prepared for class discussion of the assigned reading for the day.

And here’s my drawing in response to this chapter in which I try to visualize the last line of the Gettysburg Address and the verb implied by the parallel prepositional phrases.
