Loaded Language in Non-Fiction
Quick write: Choose a quote from around the room and write it in your Writer's Notebook. Explain what you think it means and also give your opinion about the meaning.
Loaded Language: Authors choose their words carefully and sometimes those words can show their bias.
Make a table like the one below in your writer's notebook.
Go back through the articles we have read in this unit and find examples of language that reveals bias.
When you have 2-3 words you can "trade" words with a partner to get more.
