This is a PowerPoint presentation that I made to accompany my teaching of Colons and Semicolons using Houghton Mifflin's English Grade 8, BUT you do not need the book for this lesson. Included in the PowerPoint are:
2. Guided Notes/Explanation of colons and semicolons
3. Practice using colons and semicolons
4. Practice writing a announcement using colons and semicolons correctly
The presentation is 39 slides and takes one 45-minute class period.
