Participants will:

  • see presented fifteen punctuation marks,

  • practise teaching even the more complex punctuation functions,
  • have access to the course for four weeks,
  • receive a re-useable worksheet for direct classroom application,
  • receive a certificate of completion.

Knowing when and how to teach each punctuation concept is the theme of this workshop.
