Thanks to Charlyne for adding two essential items to the list I tossed
out. Also, it occurs to me that I should have mentioned Working With
Words by the Missouri Group as a worthy text.

Amen to everything Gene says!

	But I'd add one more thing. Students need to know the difference
between an independent and dependent clause so they know why they do or
don't need that comma before "and."


Oh, and yet another thing they need to know: the difference between a
regular coordinating conjunction like "and" or "but" and conjunctive
adverbs like "however" so that student understand they can't just
substitute "however" for "but" and pretend all is well.

I agree that "When Words Collide" is an excellent text/resource for
journalism students. We use it in all our writing and reporting and
editing classes here at UNL.
