This includes 55 page Power Point ready to go!
Students often use clichés in their writing. This material teaches them 1) what a cliché is 2) how to avoid using them 3) how to identify them.
My students LOVE this game. It's probably their favorite game all semester and I see a large decrease in clichés in their writing as a result of this lesson. It's interactive, fast and fun.
The Power Point includes:
* A mini explanation/lecture about clichés.
* A few practice clichés to reword.
* A game with over 50 slides ready to go called "Name that cliché" to teach students to identify them.
I teach college and use this in Freshman Composition, but it could also be used in middle and high school. It's universal.
