Hello, I am beginning two graduate courses for my master's degree tonight, but I am thinking that it would be too much to manage as a first-year teacher. I am thinking about dropping one of the courses, but I am not sure which one to drop. The two courses are advanced grammar and coming of age stories. The books for the stories course look great and I think the content will be applicable to my 9th and 10th grade students, but the grammar course intrigues me, too. I consider myself a pretty decent writer, but I have a basic understanding of how the English language actually works. Do you think it is necessary for a high school English teacher to know how to diagram sentences and identify the complex components of a sentence? Do you, yourself, know how to do this? Thank you.
