Since we’ve quit teaching grammar in most American classrooms, it’s very difficult for students to understand the difference between verbal inflections like tense, aspect, voice, and mood.

If you’re having trouble teaching about the subjunctive mood, this is an excellent resource. It provides scholarly definitions of the phenomenon and a number of examples.
