Words of Wisdom

Cram your head with characters and stories. Abuse your library privileges. Never stop looking at the world, and never stop reading to find out what sense other people have made of it. If people give you a hard time and tell you to get your nose out of a book, tell them you're working. Tell them it's research. Tell them to pipe down and leave you alone.

— Jennifer Weiner

This workshop is structured around a Jeopardy! game that covers basic punctuation and grammar issues, such as commas, subject-verb agreement, misplaced modifiers, and style choices. Each question has an optional explanation screen that goes into detail about the rule or guideline discussed. Students are encouraged to ask questions to clarify meaning or further explain the error discussed. The slides below won't work quite properly as Jeopardy!; they have to be downloaded and viewed in PowerPoint to work.
