Module 3

Punctuation & Capitalization

The Punctuation & Capitalization module uses an interactive approach to teach student how to correctly punctuate sentences and how to identify punctuation mistakes. This is accomplished by requiring the student to insert the correct punctuation mark and identify the rule explaining why the punctuation mark was inserted. Students who understand punctuation rules are far more likely to correctly punctuate their own writing (as opposed to placing punctuation marks where “it sounds correct”). This module also includes a lesson on capitalization.

Average time to complete: 5 to 7 hours.
