Does anyone know of a good (free) website for punctuation help? DH has just gone back to school, and it turns out that I'm having to homeschool him as well! He's taking Technical Writing this summer, and spelling/grammar/punctuation has always been a problem for him. While I can write and punctuate fairly well, I'm sure I can't explain "the rules" to him...and of course, I haven't tackled punctuation yet with Rachael, so I don't have any sites bookmarked that would help him.

I didn't have much luck Google'ing it, although I did find a fun punctuation rules rap song. He wasn't amused.

Thanks for your help!

I'm sure he'll whine about all the reading...but those are exactly what he needs. Thank you!

I would also look at some of those little grammar books at the library. They have some that have short little lessons for writers.

Here's a wonderful site for writing rules. It's called OWL Purdue (Online Writing Lab).
