Comma Drama

Did you know there are over thirty different comma rules?! Have no fear! You will only be responsible for nine:)

Include multimedia components (e.g., graphics, images, music, sound) and visual displays in presentations to clarify information
Vary sentence patterns for meaning, reader/listener interest, and style.
Use punctuation (commas, parentheses, dashes) to set off nonrestrictive/parenthetical elements.*

Let's make a rule to never underestimate the comma! One tiny mark has the power to save an old lady's life as well as your writing! In an effort to better understand the role of a comma, you and your partner will watch the following video over comma rules and complete the handout that goes along with it. Once you have completed the handout correctly, you and your partner will begin building a website over the nine rules. You will list the rule and come up with an example to post underneath the rule. YOU CAN ONLY ADD PICTURES AFTER YOUR 9 RULES AND EXAMPLES ARE POSTED AND APPROVED!

Ex: Use a comma to separate city and state

               I wish I lived in Orlando, Florida, because then I could visit Disney all the time!
