  12. “The Humble Comma” • -When should we use commas? When do we tend to abuse them? • -Many writers use commas in places for emphasis on a specific object, or the writer wants us to pause and think about what he/shejust wrote. • -Here is a perfect example from Chris Crutcher’s novel Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes: • “ One of the worst things schools do is give you the idea that they can take responsibility for other people. We want the best athletes, students, debaters to be role models– to set examples for the other kids. We ask for perfection---no, for a show of perfection. Then we’re disappointed when you let us down, and even if we’re not, you are. Well, I want to go on record as saying the sooner you learn you’re your life’s accountant, the sooner you’ll have tools to hammer out a decent life. Mark Brittain is in the hospital because he tried to poison his body. He felt because of his responses to the world, not yours. Other people may try to tell you differently, but don’t let them. You won’t be helping yourself, and you won’t be helping Mark Brittain” (217).

  14. “The Humble Comma” • -Read the essay to yourself (annotate it, ask questions, underline important passages, focus on what you think the author’s main purpose is” • Share with a partner: What did you get out this essay? Main ideas? Author’s purpose? • Discuss with the class your findings: share what you had to say about the essay. • With a partner: identify what you believe to believe the author’s main purpose (with one quote of support), answer questions 3 &4 from the back of the essay, and complete a response to this essay from the point of view of another punctuation mark. • Your response should be 10 sentences and you may only have 5 simple sentences. Use two vocabulary words (underlined), and use one ; correctly. • Finish early? Work on your vocabulary or your Blink scenario, which is due on Sept 29th (written portion) and Sept 30th (performance portion).
