Product Description
Is your students' writing a bit conversational? Would you like to help them take a more scholarly, or academic, approach? Do they need help seeing the difference?

This resource can be used as a packet for students, or as separate instructional pieces to use as the teacher sees fit. It includes a description of a "scholarly voice" and a "conversational voice," as well as suggestions for when to use each one. A two-page table of conversational examples and their scholarly alternatives with reasoning is provided, followed by scaffolded practice. Conversational sample paragraphs are given with a breakdown of unscholarly issues and rewritten scholarly paragraphs. Scholarly paragraphs include explanations of what makes the writing more scholarly. Two student-practice sheets are given for additional scaffolded practice or independent practice. A key for both practice sheets is provided with sample scholarly paragraphs. A few tips/teaching points are included throughout. Content is written with a little bit of humor for the students' (and teacher's) amusement.
