I feel compelled to add my own 2c on this discussion. Looked at from the
point of view of Bloom's Taxonomy, diagramming sentences is pretty much
Analysis, which generally means that students would have already mastered or
at least reached the Knowledge, Comprehension, and Application levels within
English/Language Arts. I'm not sure most 6th graders (or even 9th graders)
have mastered them. This would support the hypothesis, already stated, that
the good students do well in diagramming, and they don't really need it!

I've lost track of how we got onto this subject, too, were we talking about
the merits of proofs? Where on Bloom's Taxonomy would you place them?
