5. Personally, I think that sentence diagramming

 

should be an essential part of English. It really helps a person understand the language, the various parts of speech, and so on.

Start in about fifth or sixth grade with very simple sentences. Work up to fairly complex ones by ninth or tenth grade.

Oh, and along the way, teach the difference between lie and lay, its and it's, and so on.
