Probably the most frequent error I see in student writing is the misuse and abuse of commas - a little problem I like to call comma-itis. As such, I teach these 10 basic comma rules at the beginning of the year. This presentation with the guided notes is where I begin. After this lesson, have the students create a one-page "cheat sheet" for themselves that they must keep all year. I re-emphasize the rules throughout the year.
I realize that stopping the spread of comma-itis completely is impossible; but maybe, just maybe, this lesson will be a step in the right direction.
Thank you for stopping by my store!
