An English teacher I am working with is doing a research project with her
classes in which she is teaching some of her 7th grade classes in a drill and
practice format when she teaches grammar, sentence structure, etc. and the
other classes with an arts orientation. She is trying to see which group does
better on our state assessment in writing which our kids have not done very
well on. I am assessing the art assignments according to some rubrics we had
previously established. So far, it has been fun, but she is not sure which if
any group is doing better.
Anyway, we need some ideas on how to teach punctuation using art, music,
drama, dance or any combination thereof. We did have the idea of having the
kids create a game to teach younger kids how to use a comma, question mark and
period. Any ideas? The bottom line has to be that they learn how to use
puncuation correctly. Thanks!
