    Post Reading of rules in Building a Number or Reading of the rules in Building a Number

    Teachers,
    I am trying to make a PROGRAMME for our Math and Science Fair.
    In the program, a teacher will read the rules in the game: Building a Number.

    Which is more right to use as a title "Reading of rules in Building a Number" or "Reading of the rules in Building a Number?"

    Re: Reading of rules in Building a Number or Reading of the rules in Building a Numbe

    To me, using "the" sounds better.

    Re: Reading of rules in Building a Number or Reading of the rules in Building a Numbe

    If it's clear that someone (a teacher or otherwise) is going to be reading out the section, then the title can just be "The Rules of Building a Number". Note that, in BrE at least, we usually refer to the rules of something, not ​in.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The same is true in AmE.
