How do you teach punctuation in a way that students remember and apply to their own writing?

The author shares great ideas for using picture books and big books, chapter books and more for learning about commas, capitalization, dashes, ellipses, and more. Suddenly, students are motivated to improve the punctuation in their own writing, because they see how punctuation is used by writers they admire.
