Description/Educational Objectives:
The session will begin with a review of the basics of commas and move to a brief discussion of some of the changes in the rules over the last few years. This will be followed by a discussion of parentheticals -- definition, types, examples – and how to punctuation them. After this will follow a definition of introductory elements and how to differentiate the types.
