Product Description
Before writing any type of piece, students should understand the register they are expected to use when writing. This lesson will help teach that skill so that they always use the appropriate style and language in their writing.

This lesson will work well as part of a larger writing unit, or when studying writing. However, it would also be perfect as a one-off substitute lesson!

CONTENTS

STEP-BY-STEP LESSON PLAN
This step-by-step plan will guide you through the lesson, with tips and hints for teaching.

VARYING FORMALITY SLIPS
The lessons required students to sift through these slips in groups, which contain sentences of varying formality. They have to try and categorize them in an attempt to see that word choice and tone changes depending on the formality.

UNDERSTANDING REGISTER
This informational handout covers the differences in formal and informal language, and explains the importance of GAPS (genre, audience, purpose and style) when determining register. This can be kept in students’ books/files for reference purposes.

WRITING USING DIFFERENT REGISTERS
This writing exercise requires students to put their knowledge into practice and write the same content in three different variations of formality.

(Optional) THINKING ABOUT GAPS
This worksheet challenges students to classify the genre, audience and purpose of different briefs, and then identify how this would impact the style of writing.
