Punctuation

Should that pause in your sentence be long, short, or somewhere in between? Practice using commas and semicolons with a series of grammar activities. High schoolers read a series of sentences and paragraphs and decide where they should add the appropriate punctuation mark. Additionally, they work on the difference between colons and semicolons with a few rewriting exercises.
