If your students are anything like mine, you may sometimes throw up your hands at the lack (or misuse) of commas in their essays and stories. I created the Comma Basics Series of Power Point lessons with the goal of identifying the most egregious types of commas errors and addressing them in a clear and engaging way.
Comma Basics II guides students in the use of commas to separate items in a list and before conjunctions and compound sentences. The lesson employs active student engagement strategies and written practice throughout. I hope you find it helpful! - Rae Galeazzi
