Worrying about subjects and verbs, pronouns and antecedents may not seem like a top priority when you’re working on a deadline. But if you want to make your writing crystal clear, there are a few rules you need to know.

In the third in a five-part series of open-source learning videos on grammar, created in partnership with Ryerson University and Sheridan College, journalism professors Lisa Taylor and Nicole Blanchett Neheli have some practical advice on making your sentences grammatically agreeable.

And if the exciting proposition of mastering subject-verb agreement isn’t enough to get you to check out this resource, you may be drawn in by the original artwork of Sheridan Illustration students that is featured in the video.
