Parentheses

Common Core Standards

Parentheses are useful when you want to add in random tidbits (and we tend to enjoy being random), but make sure you pay attention to your punctuation! Otherwise you will be random and inaccurate, and that's simply not okay. (We are also sticklers for grammar, in case you couldn't tell by now.)
