Punctuation is important. Period. Good writers know the rules, but skilled punctuators don’t simply go by the conventions. They use punctuation to make meaning. Practical Punctuation shows you how to help students discover the relationship between punctuation and meaning—and how they can use it to improve their writing.
Practical Punctuation’s strategies help writers connect periods, commas, and dashes to mood, emphasis, and rhythm. Dan Feigelson’s ready-to-use lessons provide opportunities to:
  • show students the purposes of punctuation before teaching them the rules
  • give writers chances to experiment with punctuating
  • model the thinking that goes into punctuating
  • teach conventions explicitly, but not absolutely
  • hold students accountable for punctuation in formal writing.
