Punctuation Station: punctuate and capitalize sentences

Hinweis von Christine Reymond: Infonews-Mailinglist: " I found this activity in Everyday Teaching Newsletter, Fri., May 17th : "Students can choose from six different text formats to punctuate and capitalize sentences, using their keyboards and the mouse. Choices include a formal letter, an email, a children's story, a report, a brochure, or a newspaper article."
This activity can be used to train students to give the correct intonation to sentences. Each text can be read and heard, and the students decide where to put the stops and when to use a
capital letter. The exercise is simple, but if you encourage them to concentrate on the intonation, it can be quite useful. they can also discuss the different meanings a sentence can take if you put the stops in different places.
