A poster highlighting the correct use of quotation marks and punctuation for direct speech.
This poster highlights rules when using quotation marks and gives examples for each rule.
According to the Australian Government Style Manual, single quotation marks should be used for direct speech.
However, many teachers instruct their students to use double quotation marks for direct speech.
We have created two versions of this resource in order to cater for both preferences. Both versions have a colour and a black and white version available.
