Maintain a Formal Style and Objective Tone

This Maintain a Formal Style and Objective Tone video also includes:

It's easy to slip into informal language while writing an essay. That's why strong writers go back into their work and revise. Show your class a video, or use the slides, about how to determine what language needs to be changed so that it is formal and objective. The narrator goes through several steps, focusing on audience, emotional language, and personal language. While the video is based on an essay for "Mrs. Manstey's View" by Edith Wharton, the strategy could be used for any assignment. Hold a writer's workshop and have your class check over their language after viewing the video.
