**Summary:**This project is for me to post my attempts to learn grammar. I am starting with the practice sentences from Elliot’s grammar article.
**Goal:**To post 5 critical reviews and or research posts related to my grammatical sentence analyses by 4/20/22.
**Metrics:**Minimum of 5 posts to review the learning project.
**Broader goal:**Learn philosophy prerequisites. Get better at reading analysis, power up and become a better learner.
**Values:**This is part of my higher level goal to learn philosophy and learn about having a great life.
**CF relevance:**Preparing for textual analysis.
**Plan:**I have already done 10 sentences from part 3 of the grammar article. I now plan to critically review for errors and research topical issues.
**Resource budget:**Overall this took about five hours already. Most of that time was diving into specific topics and going on related tangents. I was again re-reading the grammar article, googling grammar, and watching Max Tutoring videos (most of the way through #8 now). I think I will need about another 4-6 hours to complete.
**Asks:**Corrections on my analysis and trees. As it pertains to the next section in this template, I would like to hear some suggestions on what beginners can offer that might be of value.
**Offers:**The value I can see someone else getting from this is from teaching and analyzing my mistakes to see where beginners go wrong.
**Independence:**I will complete this project even if I don’t get any replies.
**Confidence:**I am 80% confident that I will succeed at the project. I have scaled down from my last project but I just don’t trust my ability to judge if I will follow through properly.
**Follow through:**I think that I can finish the project within the next week (4/20/22). My contingency plan if I find more to review or get more feedback than I can respond to within my time budget is to create another learning project to address those topics.
**Context:**I am a native English speaker with a about an average intuition for the language.
**Background:**I analyzed the first 20 sentences from ET’s grammar article.
**Track Record:**My last learning project was fruitful. It didn’t succeed but I have scaled down.
**Priorities:**I have become convinced that learning grammar is important to learning many other topics well.
**Progress:**The 10 sentence analyses are already done.
**Problems:**I’m a bit worried about going on a tangent related to a grammar topic but not coming up with much to post. If I lost two hours to something of a dead end then I may not have as much time to look into more pertinent topics. I’m planning to try a bit of stop-loss at 20 minutes of research if I’m not finding much value in a topic of research/review.
