I really liked that the first item I clicked on had a verbal element, but also a written one so I could follow along. The drawback is that this is not just Grammar Girl; it is a website of disparate material. A student could easily get side tracked and never return to Grammar Girl. Also, the topic boxes may not address specifically what you are looking for. The ideas are more for people who really love language and seek to know more...not for students trying to survive Comp I and II.
