*The preview file provides a COMPLETE transcript of the entire Prezi. It won't show how awesome the Prezi itself is, but you will know exactly what you are getting instruction wise!*
This dynamic eight-slide Prezi begins by providing a definition of the word euphemism and prompts students to brainstorm as many euphemisms as they can think of for death. The next slide gives a list of euphemisms for death along with three questions that encourage class discussion about which would be appropriate in different settings.
The rest of the presentation provides more information on euphemisms and concludes with guided practice where students list euphemisms for three different words. Answers are provided on different slides. The last slide requires students to think about why euphemisms would be used in advertising.
If you haven't given Prezi at try, now is a great time. My students like the graphics and organization much better than PowerPoint.
