This is the function I use in my ~/.bashrc file:

function termtitle() { PS1="${PS1/\\u@\\h: \\w/$@}"; }

After adding it (or changing it) you must resource your file:

. ~/.bashrc

To use it type something like:

termtitle Special Projects

After changing the title once, you must resource to change it again:

. ~/.bashrc
termtitle My new title
