Love this video from the National Union of Teachers (UK) – please tell me things have changed a bit since then! – and while it might seem archaic, it might be an interesting jumping off point for students to think about how they adapt what they say, and write, when online and off.
Discussion points might include:
- The way we use different language styles according to context
- The pressure of one’s peers to change your behaviour
- Different generations and the shifts in language and behaviour
