+ Quote? Italics? BOLD? When and how to notate titles
+ Italics v. quotation marks Use QUOTE marks for things that are SHORT Use ITALICS for things that are LONG
+ Examples of when to use quotes Poems “ Prometheus” by Lord Byron Songs “The Star Spangled Banner” by Francis Scott Key Magazine Articles “Learning from Lincoln’s Wisdom” by William Kristol Short Stories “A Rose for Emily” by William Faulkner Episodes in a TV series: “The Trouble with Tribbles” in Star Trek Chapters within a book: “The Boy Who Lived” in Harry Potter
+ Examples of when to use italics Novels: Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling Magazines: Time Magazine Television Series: Star Trek Movies: Shrek Ships: The Monitor
+ Other NEVER ON YOUR OWN TITLE Never use bold Only underline in handwritten essays (instead of italics) Capitalize all major words in titles (everything but a, an, the, and, of, to) In writing, always refer to the author by LAST NAME. First name is too casual, and you do not know him/her personally. Correct: Bradbury’s style is very descriptive and he uses many metaphors and similes to develop his imagery. Incorrect:Ray’s (or Mr. Bradbury’s) style is very descriptive and he uses many metaphors and similes to develop his imagery.
+ Review In other words, remember parts of a whole. The parts are in quotes and the whole is in italics. “Parts” of a whole
+ Quick Quiz Yesterday, I watched the first episode of New Girl. Have you read The Hunger Games Series? Catching Fire is my favorite. For homework, we were assigned an article on the influence of technology called A Siri-us Disconnection. It was published in Readers Digest. Have you heard Taylor Swift’s song Begin Again? It’s from her album Red. I’m very excited to see the movie adaptation of Divergent.
