Product Description
This is a 1920's slang dictionary, adapted from the extensive list found on Grapeville Cokeville Independent School District's website. This list has been highly edited (down from 8 to 2 pages) so that you can give it as a handout or with an activity.

** Suggested supplemental activity: In my class, I start with a bell ringer (ie: What is slang? Name two slang words.). I then Think-Pair-Share to have students translate the following phrase: "That ossified cake-eater with the cheaters on thinks his applesauce will land him a date." (translates: That drunk ladies-man with the glasses on thinks his stuff will land him a date) I then have them get into small groups and prepare a skit. There must be a minimum of one line per student that has a slang-word in it. They should pick a topic before they start, such as going to a speakeasy, a dance hall, asking someone on a date, or going to a baseball game. I give them 20 minutes to work, and 5 minutes each to present. **
