What are some examples of memory strategies that I could use to teach students when to use a comma?
Encoding is the first step in making a memory. For this example it would be important for students to know when to use a comma. Therefore they would need to know what a participial phrase is, when a quotation starts, and what a list of things looks like. If they are able to identify these three parts of language it should serve as a trigger to remind them that a comma is needed in these situations.

To get this skill into short-term memory practice is needed. A teacher could have sentences on the board without punctuation. The teacher could read the sentence inserting a pause where the comma should go. In this way, students are seeing the visual sentence and hearing the pause. This should help them tie the pause to the comma. They are using multiple forms of input to file this information in short-term memory.
