Punctuation?!?!? 
Monday, July 20, 7:00pm-7:45pm
Most students have two punctuation marks in their arsenal: the period and the comma. But what about the rest of them? During this session, we’ll examine how to use commas, semicolons, colons, parentheses, and dashes. Proper punctuation not only improves writing skills and test scores, but helps students better convey their point. A few skills can go a long way in both high school and college!
