Grammar and punctuation

Grammar and punctuation are important. Fair or not, people make assumptions about your intelligence and capabilities based on how you write. No one will praise you for using correct grammar and punctuation but, rest assured, your mistakes will be criticised.

Most of us know when something looks wrong, but we often cannot explain why. It could be said that we use punctuation by instinct rather than by rule. But there ARE rules…

We are going to design and print a rule book and each of you will design one page. Each page will explain and illustrate or demonstrate a grammatical or punctuation issue. When completed you will each receive a copy of the completed book to use as a reference.
