This lesson covers everything that young writers need to know about titles. Students will learn about the purpose of titles, strategies for creating a great title, and familiarize themselves with punctuation and capitalization conventions of titles.
How can you *see* what your students are thinking while they read? Try reading response letters in your class. Students will practice formatting letters and learn to discuss their thinking about literature in writing.
