Landmark Punctuation

0 0 121
Have students review the material on punctuation in the handbook. In small groups, ask them to explain how different punctuation marks function by linking them to local landmarks. For example, at Florida Atlantic University, I95 midday is like a comma, in the morning is like a semicolon, but with an accident it’s like a period.
