Puns and Punctuation

Explore the writing traits of word choice and conventions. Middle school writers use this Six-Traits Writing lesson to discuss the writing style of the Tom Swift Adventure Series by Victor Appleton. They examine "Tom Swiftie" puns, paying special attention to dialogue punctuation. First in groups and then as individuals, they create their own "Tom Swiftie" puns for their writer's notebooks or for a classroom collection.
