PARAGRAPH POINTER: Titles

Many paragraphs have a title. A title of a paragraph tells the main idea in a few words. Here are some things to remember when you write titles:

  1. • Titles are not complete sentences.
  2. • Always capitalize the first and last words of a title.
  3. • Capitalize all other important words. Do not capitalize articles (a, an, the) or prepositions (to, from, at, etc.).
  4. • Do not use a period at the end of a title. Do not use quotation marks (” “) around the title. But you may use a question mark 0) or an exclamation point (!).
  5. • Center a title.
