Product Description
Scholars must learn how to change the register in which they write. The academic voice is the style in which most expository works are written and the one in which the scholars will have to be versed, but it's a far cry from the writing voice to which they are accustomed. This explanatory page for scholars helps them better understand the differences in writing in a casual, a consultative and an academic voice.

The tips and guidelines included here discuss avoiding colloquialisms (here defined), personal pronouns, vague second-person pronouns, common broad words, etc. It also includes three columns of examples in which a casual statement is translated to the consultative voice and then to the academic (from Friend's tone, to Teacher's tone, to Principal's).
