Before more efficient and effective ways to teach punctuation can be developed, it must be understood how beginning readers and writers make sense of the subject. "Learning About Punctuation" seeks to determine what the evidence tells us. This book is divided into clusters of articles. In the first, Nigel Hall offers a substantial overview and review of some of the issues and research pertaining to how children use punctuation. A cluster of three chapters follows, 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 cluster reveals more intense studies of particular areas of punctuation knowledge and development.
