The KISS Grammar
List Server 
(The KISSList)

      If you are not familiar with list servers, they are a way of setting up discussion groups. Once you sign up, you can send a message to the list and the message will then be sent to all the members of the list. You will get (and can respond to) everyone else's messages. You can unsubscribe at any time. The easiest way to do either is to send me a message at evavra@kissgrammar.org. *

        The purpose of the list is to discuss any questions related to grammar and especially to the KISS Approach, such as:

the analysis of specific sentences, 
definitions of KISS terms, 
types of effective exercises, 
examples of specific exercises, 
problems in using the approach, 
sequencing of instruction, 
and natural syntactic development. 
Please don't hesitate to ask questions. See "The Smartest People Ask the 'Stupid' Questions."

     Anyone who is interested in discussing the KISS Approach may become a member of the list. This includes not only teachers, but also home-schooling parents, administrators, business people, etc. I reserve the right to ban anyone from the list for inappropriate language or for sending too many messages not related to the teaching of grammar. The list is private to avoid ads and spam.

* The list moved to the KISS site in September 2017, and I'm still new at managing it. You can subscribe by emailing the list itself at kisslist@kissgrammar.org. If you do that, I get a message that you want to subscribe. If I approve, you get another message from the list telling you how to subscribe. (Don't ask me why, it supposedly has something to do with not letting someone else subscribe you to the list.) If you do go through that procedure, I don't know whether you are automatically subscribed, or if I have to approve again. E-mail me directly, and I'll just add you--and you should get a welcome message from the list. As I understand it, you can e-mail the list and write "unsubscribe" in the body of the message, and you will automatically be unsubscribed. If that doesn't work, e-mail me directly.
     I do want to thank Pennsylvania College of Technology for hosting the list for many years.

Another KISS Discussion Group

The Yahoo KISSGrammarGroup

      Since this list was started, Leah Del Signore (a member of this list) has started a Yahoo KISS Grammar Group. You can join it by going to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/KISSGrammarGroup/. As of now, it has about 500 members.
