Product Description
Through this series of Common Core aligned activities, students will construct their own knowledge of the following language types-- formal, informal, colloquial, scholarly, conversational, objective, subjective, factual, emotional, concrete, abstract, literal, figurative, and symbolic-- and discover how they convey tone and theme.

Rather than simply have students take notes, they "discover," through four guided activities including writing for different audiences and analyzing language samples, how language registers differ.

Package includes:
Hands-on, engaging writing activity to discover students' own language registers and code switching
Fill-in-the-blank language flowcharts
Guided notes using language samples
An analysis of an excerpt from a high-interest novel, Jeanette Walls' The Glass Castle, that investigates language use and purpose
