Common Core Curriculum alignment
Use commas and quotation marks to mark direct speech and quotations from a text.
Choose punctuation for effect.*
Use punctuation to separate items in a series.*
Use a comma to separate an introductory element from the rest of the sentence.
Use a comma to set off the words yes and no (e.g., Yes, thank you), to set off a tag question from the rest of the sentence (e.g., It's true, isn't it?), and to indicate direct address (e.g., Is that you, Steve?).
Use underlining, quotation marks, or italics to indicate titles of works.
Use punctuation (commas, parentheses, dashes) to set off nonrestrictive/parenthetical elements.*
