Students are given a booklet of work on the first day of each school week. That booklet is submitted the following week on the first day back. This week the booklet is short so that students can complete it before the long weekend if they work on it after school and during "T-time". The next booklet will be a reading comprehension booklet and the following one will be grammar related. This alternating pattern will continue until the end of the second week in June. The final booklet of this type will be due at the start of the third week of June. Students must continue to read and record what they are reading in their log sheets.

Response #13 Write out a paragraph or several sentences from your book that use capitals in several different ways. The page of notes includes some of the rules of capitalization but capitals maybe used for other purposes as well. Explain the “rule” being used for each of the capitals or explain the purpose of capitalizing in each situation from your book. (You should have at least four examples of different types of capitalization.) Capitalization Notes: Capitalization Rules Rule 1 Capitalize the first word of a quoted sentence. Examples:He said, "Treat her as you would your own daughter.""Look out!" she screamed. "You almost ran into my child." Rule 2 Capitalize a proper noun. Example:Golden Gate Bridge Rule 3 Capitalize a person's title when it precedes the name. Do not capitalize when the title is acting as a description following the name. Examples:Chairperson PetrovMs. Petrov, the chairperson of the company, will address us at noon. Rule 4 Capitalize the person's title when it follows the name on the address or signature line. Example:Sincerely,Ms. Haines, Chairperson Rule 5 Capitalize the titles of high-ranking government officials when used before their names. Do not capitalize the civil title if it is used instead of the name. Examples:The prime minister will address the Legislature.All legislators are expected to attend.The senators, lieutenant governors, and attorneys general called for a special task force.Governor Fortinbrass, Lieutenant Governor Poppins, Attorney General Dalloway, and MLA’s James and Twain will attend. Rule 6 Capitalize any title when used as a direct address. Example:Will you take my temperature, Doctor? Rule 7 Capitalize points of the compass only when they refer to specific regions. Examples:We have had three relatives visit from the South.Go south three blocks and then turn left.We live in the southeast section of town.Southeast is just an adjective here describing section, so it should not be capitalized. Rule 8 Always capitalize the first and last words of titles of publications regardless of their parts of speech. Capitalize other words within titles, including the short verb forms Is, Are, and Be. Exception:Do not capitalize little words within titles such as a, an, the, but, as, if, and, or, nor, or prepositions, regardless of their length. Examples:The Day of the JackalWhat Color Is Your Parachute?A Tale of Two Cities Rule 9 Capitalize federal or province/state when used as part of an official agency name or in government documents where these terms represent an official name. If they are being used as general terms, you may use lowercase letters. Examples:The state has evidence to the contrary.That is a federal offense.The Provincial Board of Equalization collects sales taxes.We will visit three provinces during our summer vacation.The Ontario Provincial Police has been subject to much scrutiny and criticism lately.Her business must comply with all county, provincial, and federal laws. Rule 10 You may capitalize words such as department, bureau, and office if you have prepared your text in the following way: Example:The Bureau of Land Management (Bureau) has some jurisdiction over Indian lands. The Bureau is finding its administrative role to be challenging. Rule 11 Do not capitalize names of seasons. Example:I love autumn colors and spring flowers. Rule 12 Capitalize words derived from proper nouns. Example:I must take English and math.English is capitalized because it comes from the proper noun England, but math does not come from Mathland. Rule 13 Capitalize the names of specific course titles. Example:I must take history and Algebra 2.
