  1. Punctuation

  2. Meet Period • What it does: Separates ideas. • What it “says”: “We are done with this thought. Let’s move on.” • What it cannot do: Connect ideas • It’s kind of like a: Wall that divides two properties

  3. Meet Comma • What it does: Joins a smaller idea to the main idea • What it “says”: “And one more thing that connects here . . .” • What it cannot do: Connect two big ideas (ICs) • It’s kind of like a: Hook connecting a train car to the engine

  4. Meet Semicolon • What it does: Connects two big ideas (ICs) • What it “says”: “I’m not done yet; there is another idea coming.” • What it cannot do: Put two unrelated thoughts into one sentence • It’s kind of like a: A bridge between two cities

  5. Meet Colon • What it does: Joins a list to an independent clause • What it “says” “Such as” or “For example” • What it cannot do: Conclude a thought • It’s kind of like a: Mom telling you what chores to do Sportscaster or presenter at an awards show

  6. Listen up: • You should know this fact: a colon can be used to introduce and emphasize important ideas EVEN WHEN THERE IS NO LIST • Here is one more reminder: there is not always a list after a colon. • Something else besides a list can come after a colon: one really important statement.
