Product Description
20 minute presentation

A humorous and cheesy PowerPoint presentation for teaching students how to use a formal tone with their writing. Includes the seven "nevers": text talk, slang, valley girl, contractions, cliches, "get", and words with no/multiple meanings. Lots of examples are included- many are particularly exaggerated for comic relief.

I have also developed a notes sheet for students to fill out as I present the information. You can find it here for free: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Notes-for-Formal-Tone-presentation-1648436

*PLEASE NOTE: the YouTube video in the presentation contains a swear word ("haul @$$"). I would consider it suitable for high school students. For middle school, I paused the video before the swear, skipped forward a couple of seconds, and re-started it. I only showed a short portion of the video.
