“Double Double Speak Speak”

This “Double Double Speak Speak” lesson plan also includes:

Bilateral suborbital hematoma? Call an audible? 404? Have fun with “the twittering or warbling of birds,” or as 14th century French speakers would say, have fun with “jargon.” Groups match specialized jargon with plain speech, decode elevated jargon (Coruscate, coruscate, minuscule nuclear explosion/How I ponder the nature of your existence) or translate song lyrics into standard English. The final discussion focuses on the advantages of using slang or jargon.
