Partner Writing: Capitalization Rules Part Two

When I have tried to teach my students the rules for capitalizing titles, it has been confusing.  Book covers don't usually follow the conventions in any style manual.  I have seen everything from all lower case letters to all capital letters.

I am hoping this lesson simplifies the process.  Generally articles and prepositions in the middle of titles begin with lowercase letters and all other words begin with capital letters.  I made a short list of words that are not capitalized UNLESS they are at the beginning of a title.  I created this practice sheet that students can complete with an assigned partner.  (Click here to find out how I assign partners.)

Happy Friday!
