Product Description
This 15-slide PowerPoint introduces students to Tudor language patterns (also referred to as Elizabethan language), preparing them to study The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain. However, this introduction can be used for any novel that is set in the middle ages with a Tudor English dialect. Students learn about early modern English pronouns, words like hither and hence, different vowel endings, and inverted word order. This helps to "demystify" the dialect for them. I have found that investing this time on the front end is very helpful for students who might otherwise be turned off by the unfamiliar dialect.

I have also included a worksheet for students to practice "translating" Twain's Tudor dialect and bookmarks with word charts to help students as they are reading. I usually have students complete the worksheets in small groups.
