This illustrated punctuation workbook supports students with dyslexia, ADHD or other specific learning difficulties to develop their punctuation skills via inquiry-based learning.
Using humour and fun cartoons to teach punctuation, the book encourages students to engage in active learning to make their own connections about punctuation rather than rote memorisation of rules. The jokes and unexpected punch lines also help make punctuation more fun and less intimidating. Using this workbook and inquiry-based learning the student gradually becomes proficient in generalising the specific rules they have learnt, detecting patterns from examples and inferring rules.
Tricky Punctuation in Cartoons complements school literacy programmes and helps equip students who learn differently with additional ways to remember tricky punctuation rules.
