Learning About Punctuationby Nigel Hall, Anne Robinson
Before we can develop more efficient and effective ways to teach punctuation, we must first understand how beginning readers and writers make sense of the subject. Learning About Punctuation is an attempt to determine what the evidence tells us. In the first cluster of articles, Nigel Hall offers an overview and review of some of the issues and research pertaining to how children use punctuation. Four chapters follow, in which Yetta Goodman, Prisca Martens, Holly Anderson, and Sandra Wilde focus primarily on the classroom use of writing by young children. The next two chapters look at teachers: their experiences with punctuation and their beliefs about how it should be taught. The final chapters reveal more intense studies of punctuation knowledge and development.
