Description

Enhance the written expression of your student with our Italics and Underlining Lesson Plan.  This lesson demonstrates how to use underlining or italicizing while writing compositions, essays, and other papers.  Engage critical thinking and solidify understanding as students explore important reasons to italicize or underline titles and other words when writing them.

Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction

  1. Display actual movies, books, magazines, etc., collected prior to class and display the items to the students. Ask: What do each of these items have in common?
  2. Allow for responses and discussion. The students most likely will try to connect them in ways other than their titles needing to be italicized or underlined.
  3. Introduce Italics and Underlining. Stress the difference between using cursive writing and word processing.
  4. Distribute the Italics and Underlining content page. Read and review the page with the students, giving additional examples when necessary until the students have a clear understanding of the topic.
  5. Distribute the Activity page. Pair students.
  6. Review the instructions. Allow students access to the Internet or use of other resources to find the various titles, etc.
  7. Review students’ responses.
  8. Distribute Practice page. Review instructions.
  9. Check and review students’ responses.
  10. Distribute homework. Explain to students they may make up titles, etc., but the italics (if word processed) or underlining (if written) must be shown correctly.
  11. Check and review the next day.
  12. In closing, ask students why it is important to italicize or underline titles and other words when writing them.
