Summary

International bestselling author of Eats, Shoots and Leaves, Lynne Truss, tries to convince Year 11 pupils that punctuation will change their world.

Her book has re-established punctuation as a hot topic for debate. But will today's internet and texting generation really have much time for the semi-colon?

In this episode of The Teaching Challenge, where celebrities find out just how tough it is to be a teacher, Lynne takes on an English class who hold strong opinions.

The pupils of Davison High School take to the streets of Worthing to point out bad punctuation to shopkeepers and restaurateurs.
