Our Punctuation for Effect lesson plan introduces students to the effect punctuation has on the meaning of a sentence and how to more effectively use different punctuation in their writing. Students are asked to work collaboratively to create a creative poster that illustrates the effect and use of punctuation. Students are also asked to demonstrate their understanding of these concepts individually by matching the punctuation to its meaning, writing sentences using various punctuation, and more.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to correctly use punctuation for effect while writing and when reading.
