A geeky teacher teaches geeky grammar
Then I said, "If the subject of a sentence is the part that tells 'who' then tell me the subject of this sentence."
One of my students answered, "The Doctor."
Then I said, "Doctor Who?" and laughed for about the next 5 minutes straight. Seriously, at one point I was sitting on the floor laughing because I think I'm so hilarious.
(BTW, they know it's a tv show because I told them. And explained how very geeky I was because I think it's awesome.)
So now that we're combining subjects, I explained that the Doctor always has a friend traveling with him.
The important part is though, that they remember which part is the subject (the WHO) and which part is the predicate (the WHAT) because I sat on the floor laughing when we began.
Score one for the geeks.
