Defining a proper noun
I’m trying to apply a consistent style to a teacher training website and am battling the Capital Letter Police on a few issues.
I’ve culled capital letters for nouns such as “teacher” and “headteacher” unless we refer it as part of a job title.
Now I am left with names of meetings and forms that have traditionally been capitalised, but I’m not sure they need to be. Should such things be capitalised if they are being discussed generally? Eg:
“You should undertake three observed teaching sessions each year and keep a record of the feedback received on a teaching feedback form.”
“You should undertake three Observed Teaching Sessions each year and keep a record of the feedback received on a Teaching Feedback Form.”
And: “Download a teaching feedback form (link to PDF).” or “Download a Teaching Feedback Form (link to PDF).”
