My students have a hard time remembering the difference between academic and friendly voice when writing different genres. We compare the academic voice to the formal tone you would use when speaking with an adult, and we compare the friendly voice to the informal tone you would use when speaking with a friend. We then refer to these different voices as “hello” (formal when speaking to an adult) and “hey yo” (informal when speaking to a friend).
