How Teachers Feel About Punctuation (In Gifs)

By The Concordia University-Portland Enrollment Team September 24, 2017

In honor of National Punctuation Day, spend a minute relating with other educators and have a laugh over these oh-so-common punctuation situations you’ve no doubt experienced.

When a student turns in a paper full of appropriately used commas:

When you read a news article online and they used its instead of it’s:

When your colleague makes a great case for adding an em dash:

When your colleague disagrees with you regarding the serial comma:

When you see glaring apostrophe error on a store sign:

When you’re trying to convey that you’re really, really excited:

When someone questions your semicolon usage:

Happy Punctuation Day, educators. Have a great rest of the weekend!
