Product Description
This activity asks students to rewrite short passages from the novel in modern slang. Students have fun playing with language and evaluating the differences between Wharton's century-old language and modern possibilities, which can be quite humorous. I let the students have freedom here; this exercise helps them relax about writing as they decipher Wharton's text. You can assign as many as you'd like. The writing can take quite some time. I like to let students pick and choose rather than requiring them to do them all. The sharing and discussing is the most fun for them, so be sure to allow plenty of time for that. Having them work in pairs or small groups makes for an especially fun class period.
