21. As an English and Spanish teacher, I concur.

I look at diagramming as just a visual way to represent sentence structure. I've seen research-based programs in which students use highlighters or various symbols--diagramming's easier, I think.

I teach grammar specifically and refuse to change because I'm going to get these kids in my Spanish classes and don't want to have to reteach it.
