Product Description
Teachers can change a student's life by having a classroom environment where speaking is as formal as writing. The difference between using "U" instead of "You" in an essay is obvious. But in speaking, do students realize how important it is to say husband instead of "Old Man" or wife instead of "Old Lady"? A recent New Yorker article discusses the importance of early formal-language acquisition and its later effect on a child's success in school and in the workplace. (www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/01/12talking-cure) This 24 slide PowerPoint presentation with an attached 10 page lesson plan presented by High 5 Achievers includes different activities which emphasize the importance of the formal register in speaking and writing. There are differentiated activities for struggling and advanced students. Both the PowerPoint and the lesson plan are aligned to the Common Core State Standards.
