Anyone call you an old "flathead" or a "rapscallion" recently? Want to get into someone's good graces? Why not try a little "soul butter." That didn't work? Might as well sit back, put up your feet, and have a glass of "forty-rod."
Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an enjoyable read, but (as one can see from the examples above) even the most advanced students struggle with the novel due to its language. This product provides a comprehensive list of colloquialisms, slang, historical language, and malapropisms from Huck Finn that are all carefully defined and easy to keep on hand while reading in the form of a bookmark "booklet."
The product comes in the form of a two-page Word document. All that needs to be done is to copy the pages back-to-back, trim, fold, and voila! Undeniably a vital resource for helping students through an important, enjoyable, but sometimes tricky read.
