Titles of Works - 6th Grade Grammar


Welcome to our blog post on titles of works, specifically designed for 6th-grade students. Understanding how to properly format titles of works is an essential part of grammar and writing. In this post, we will explore the rules for formatting titles of books, articles, poems, movies, and more. Knowing these rules will help you avoid common mistakes and improve your writing skills. So let's get started!


  • Capitalize the first, last, and all important words in the title of a book, play, short story, poem, movie, article, newspaper, magazine, TV series, chapter of a book, or song.
Mom hummed “Ship on the Water” while I read Treasure Island.
I wrote the “This and That” column for the Boyden School Herald.

Remember also!
  • Titles of books, movies, songs, and other works are typically italicized or placed within quotation marks.
Example: "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee or The Beatles' song "Hey Jude."
  • Longer works, such as books, movies, and TV shows, are typically italicized.
Example: The movie "The Godfather" was directed by Francis Ford Coppola.
  • Shorter works, such as songs, poems, and articles, are typically placed in quotation marks.
Example: The poem "The Waste Land" by T.S. Eliot.
  • Titles should be capitalized, except for prepositions, articles, and conjunctions of four letters or fewer.
Example: "The Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger.
  • When writing titles in sentence case (i.e., only capitalizing the first word and proper nouns), still capitalize the first word of the title and any proper nouns.
Example: I love the book "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen.
