This handout is meant to help students replace common slang terms with more academic equivalents when writing academically. It gives specific slang and a listing of specific replacements. This handout has been updated to include some of the most modern slang terms used by teenagers.
There is also a worksheet attached to the handout to allow students to have a chance to practice converting sentences using common slang terms into more academically appropriate sentences.
Please feel free to alter this handout and worksheet to suit the needs of your students.
