Conventions Workshop: Punctuating Titles
Titles of SHORT works (newspaper articles, magazine articles, short stories, songs, poems, episodes of a tv series, chapters of a book, etc.) should be put in QUOTATION MARKS.
Titles of LONGER works (names of newspapers or magazines, titles of books, cd names, tv shows, etc.) should be UNDERLINED if you’re handwriting or ITALICIZED if you’re typing. (Don’t do both.)
Note: This is how we punctuate titles in academic writing. Newspapers and magazines use different rules, which is why the Oregonian puts titles of movies in quotation marks, for example. Different rules for different situations.
Directions: Punctuate these titles by either placing quotation marks around them or underlining them.
1. Did you read that Newsweek article? (Newsweek is the title of a magazine.)
2. Have you read the poem Kubla Khan ?
3. She wrote an episode of the television show Star Trek.
4. Last year, we read the novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
5. The title of that article is Who Votes and it was in the magazine called The Atlantic.
6. Do you subscribe to Time Magazine ?
7. Have you listened to the song Anthem on the cd called Waiting ?
8. This year we’re going to read the novel Plainsong.
9. The novel Plainsong has a chapter titled Tom Guthrie.
10. Who has seen the movie Ice Age ?
11. Who has read the short story called Barn Burning ?

Conventions Workshop: Question Marks Inside or Outside Quotation Marks?
Students generally know that commas and periods go inside quotation marks (unless you’re doing parenthetical documentation), but they’re often confused about when to put question marks inside quotation marks and when to put them outside.
Here’s an easy way to answer that question: If the words inside the quotation marks are a question, keep the question mark inside. If the words inside the quotation marks are NOT a question, put the question mark outside.

For example . . .

Isn’t she your so-called “friend”?

When should we watch “The Eraser”?

Who wrote the poem “Indentured Service”?


But . . .

When did she ask, “Who’s here?

Where did he ask, “When are you leaving?

He asked, “What do you have there?



Directions: Put the question mark where it belongs, inside or outside the quotation marks.
1. Who asked, “When can I leave ”
2. How did he say, “Who are you ”
3. Have you read the story “Bartleby ”
4. When did they say, “How are your friends ”
5. Who saw the tv episode “Firefly ”
6. Where did you see the poem “Who Am I ”
7. How do you like the short story “The Lie ”
8. When will you read the short story “A Rose for Emily ”
9. How could they say, “When should we leave ”
10. Did you watch “The Stranger ”
11. Who has already read “The Cask of Amontillado ”
12. Write a sentence in which the question mark goes INSIDE the quotation marks.

13. Write a sentence in which the question mark goes OUTSIDE the quotation marks.

Conventions Workshop: Commas and Periods with Quotation Marks
Commas and periods go INSIDE ending quotation marks unless you’re British or you’re writing a research paper. Or you’re a British student writing a research paper. When you’re writing a research paper, commas and periods go outside the quotation marks when you’re using parentheses ( ) to tell where you got that quotation.
For example:

Teenagers need, on average, “nine to eleven hours of sleep per night, as opposed to

the seven or eight adults need” (Smith 42).
If you’re not writing a research paper, keep your commas and periods INSIDE ending quotation marks.
Note: Don’t forget that question marks sometimes go inside and sometimes outside, depending on whether what’s inside the quotation marks is a question. If it is, keep the question mark inside the quotation marks. If the words inside the quotation marks are NOT a question, put the question mark outside.
Place periods, commas, and question marks where they belong.
1. She said “I’m tired ”
2. She said “I’m tired ” then she walked away.

4. According to zoologist Mary Smith “animals feel a variety of emotions and express their feelings clearly ” (35)
5. I don’t want your “help ”
6. He pleaded “Please help me ” then he fainted.
7. Sometimes I like to write stories that are “out there ”
8. Who said “When can I come over ”
