Grammar Guides

Of course there are all sorts of online grammar guides that can be useful for references for your students or for teaching them a specific skill.  Try a few and pick one or two that work for you – may be different then other people around you

Citing Guides

This can be lifesavers for your students.  Again, find a website that you like, and teach your students to use it.  There are many that cite really weird, so let the students know which ones are approved by you.
