Product Description
Do your students use small, trivial, overused, trite, or otherwise just plain garbage words in formal writing? I've found that drawing their attention to word choice through fun little activities helps keep my students focused on powerful diction.

With this free activity, you will lead your students in an independent reflection activity where they consider what words they deem overused. They will assign those words to their personal "Do Not Use" List. Then, the whole class will share ideas and create a Class "Do Not Use" List. Finally, you will reveal your own expectations.

These lists can be placed around your room, in computer labs, on class websites, in writing folders, and etcetera. Conquer overused garbage words in your classroom today with this free, engaging, practical student-centered resource.
