Even the most successful writing workshops can be inconsistent in their teaching of punctuation. When we approach the teaching of mechanics as a craft tool rather than as a set of rules, students become thoughtful punctuation decision makers who consider mood, pacing and rhythm in their writing - and learn conventions in such a way that they retain and apply them consistently.

In this workshop, Dan Feigelson, author of Practical Punctuation: Lessons On Rule Making And Rule Breaking In Elementary Writing (Heinemann 2008), explores exciting ways to naturally integrate the teaching of mechanics into our writing instruction.This presentation will give participants practical ideas to use right away – and a new perspective on teaching what is too often thought of as the “boring” part of writing instruction.
