Do you ever get the statement, "English isn't important!"
I hear it all the time from my students (and a few math teachers I know)
This product is 18 pages of why English is important and how students will utilize it in the "real world."
Activities are included for the following: Twitter Instagram Facebook Maps/Directions Doing Laundry Going out to dinner (especially if people have food allergies) Figurative Language in songs Inference clues at crime scenes Video game directions Nutrition Labels Texting/informal/formal language Symbols/road signs Business typos
I am going to do this activity with my students when we come back from Christmas break this year, but next year I plan to do it the first week of school.
