Topic to be covered in class
Respond in the required format, before class
Share your own creative ways to remember AP Style punctuation tips.
I’ve shown you a few of my own attempts to make fun ways to remember commonly confused words (see a list).
The only stipulations are
- your creative contribution should include multiple examples that teach your chosen concept (with “right” and “wrong” examples clearly marked and explained)
- you have to submit something that I can link to, so future journalism students and Setonian staff members can benefit from your creativity, and
- you have to be willing to revise (in case, for instance, there’s a minor error in the content, or the audio is weak, or the file is too large, etc.)
There are 15 items. You can work in pairs, so long as at least one person is working on each of the 15 items in the chapter.
- Ashley B.
- Jenna B.
- Michelle D, Kiley F., Abbey F. (there’s a lot to cover in this one, not just the comma rule, but also coordinating/subordinating conjunctions and independent/dependent clauses)
- Olivia G.
- Jalen G.
- Jered J.
- Sarah L.
- Jessica O.
- Chelsea P
- Katelyn S. and Alexi S. (you’ll need to cover independent/dependent clauses and coordinating/subordinating conjunctions, too)
- Beth Anne S.
- Sarah T.
- Elisa T.
- Stefanie W.
- Stephanie P.

Post a link to wherever your classmates can find your revised Kersnher Chapter 9 exercise.
When you post the link, clearly state what subject you are teaching.
You are welcome to blog about your creative process, or blog your reaction to peer exercises (you can submit them as part of your next blogging portfolio, but there is no requirement other than posting your creative project online where we can find it).
Note that Friday there is a quiz. Why do you think we are spending class time on this activity? (Hint, hint.)
