Students, sometimes Language Arts and English teachers teach punctuation and grammar rules. Sometimes, they don’t. Regardless, you will need to learn basic punctuation patterns. You can teach yourself.
I think Frode Jensen’s punctuation handbook could be just the guide to help you study punctuation patterns this summer when there’s no pressure to complete an essay or paper.
This handbook provides the rules with clear examples and multiple opportunities to practice. It is my new favorite punctuation and grammar studies resource. Appropriate for rising 8+ grade students.
