Quick Grammar Reviews for the Business Writing Classroom

To help students settle into my courses and achieve success before they move on to more difficult concepts, I like to have a few quick grammar, mechanics, and punctuation reviews at the ready.

One of the easiest topics to review is capitalization. Yes, standards for capitalization vary among organizations and style guides, but a basic set of standards is something most students can easily understand and use.

Here is a Capitalization Exercise that addresses some common capitalization issues.  You are free to use it or adapt it for your classes. All we ask is that you cite us as your source. The guides for capitalization come from Rentz, K. and Lentz, P. (2014). M: Business Communication, 3e. New York: McGraw-Hill.
