In this document, you will find a capitalization introduction-reference sheet plus over 100 exercise sentences and an assessment both with keys. I think it is important to cover these rules with students and hold them accountable so that they do not make sloppy editing errors and so that you, as the teacher, do not waste your time as their personal editor as you review written work. This goes beyond the type of practice that students do in elementary school. In these exercises, students are exposed to capitalization rules for dialogue, direct quotations in expository and persuasive writing, proper adjectives, and more.
Hint: 1) Give the students the practice sheets to complete and then give them the answer keys and a marker to self-correct. Assess their progress by walking around the room and looking at the amount of corrections they make in marker. 2) For the assessment, I usually make each item worth three points and tell the students in advance that it is an all-or-nothing situation. ALL the edits for each item must be marked correctly to earn the three points. They must know the rules well and work carefully through the assessment to earn a high score on it.
