Text: Azar, Betty. Understand and Using English Grammar. Fourth Edition. Pg 42.

Some elements of this text to consider:

  • The use of blue in different parts of the page to differentiate verbs from other parts of speech.
  • An illustration at the top of the page which show two people using the verbs studied in this section of the textbook. The illustration also makes the page more visually appealing as page after page of only text might be too daunting.
  • The chart in the second half of the page is organized in a clear way with distinct horizontal rows and vertical columns that make it easy for students to see difference in different verb tenses. The left-most column has basic diagrams to illustrate the specific period of time that a verb tense is used for. Although the columns are not labelled it is quite easy to see the focus in each one.
