|LESSON THREE WRITE IT RIGHT ASSIGNMENT
Each week we will have a section that reviews the rules from the previous lesson(s). The following assignment reviews the rules we learned in Lessons One and Two. You only have to correctly punctuate the sentences in this section. You will not have to cut and paste the rules. However, I strongly urge you to look back over the rules, especially if you have any doubts about your answers. Remember that, with abbreviations, the following things are considered: punctuation marks, capitalization or lowercase, spaces or no spaces, and commas or no commas. You must also remember that some words are always spelled out in sentences and some are always abbreviated.
