What Is Included In The Purchase?:

Powerpoint Presentation (13 slides) That includes the following information: When you should use formal writing, characteristics of academic language, the difference between formal and informal language, and samples for students to 'hear' the difference with justifications.

Academic Dictionary Handout - This handout will be a strong reference for students when they are writing. It gives them examples of 'weak' words to avoid, and common 'academic' words they can use instead.

Dress Up Your Words Activity - This worksheet gives students three paragraphs written with informal language. They need to rewrite them using academic language (answer key included)

Using Transitions Handout - This handout is a good writing reference for students to use to show them different words they can use to bridge the gap between ideas.
