Rollin', Rollin', Colon

Semicolons

U Florida logoSeparate pages—whole pages—on the semi-colon, the colon, the dash, the comma, and the apostrophe.  Clear instruction.  Very informative University of Florida, St. Petersburg, site.  Note: the links to the separate pages are kind of inconspicuous at the bottom of the page.

Good coverage of the rules, but the most useful part of the site is the interactive quiz.  Students decide whether a sentence takes a colon or a semicolon.  Correct answers and explanations are provided.
