Tired of narratives and essays with boring titles? This 16-slide PowerPoint will help you teach your students a mini-lesson containing three different techniques for crafting clever titles!
Each technique has slides that explain the technique, give examples, and teach the rules of capitalization needed to properly punctuate that kind of title.
Included with this PowerPoint mini-lesson is a one-page, black-and-white printable PDF reference sheet
that lists all three techniques and the rules of capitalization for titles. A second version of the PDF reference sheet is included that contains two half-size copies of the sheet on one page to save you ink and paper. It's the perfect size for including in an interactive notebook.
What you receive in this zipped folder:
~ One 16-slide PowerPoint minilesson containing the three techniques
~ One PDF containing two versions of the PDF reference sheet: a one-pager, perfect for printing and including in a folder or binder, or as a display at a center. The second is a resized version that can print two copies of the chart on a single 8.5 x 11 sheet, which makes it an ideal size for affixing to the cover of a notebook or composition book.
