This is so much fun! Take those tired words and phrases that students tend to rely on so heavily and lay them to rest! This engaging group activity teaches students about the following:
* the importance of word choice
* writing a clear, but witty paragraph
* working in a group
You don't have to, but it's fun to bring some refreshments and decorations for this mock-formal occasion!
Everything you need is here: directions, possible attention-grabbing hooks suitable for this occasion, a worksheet, a rubric, and a sign-up sheet, should you decide to turn this into a full-blown memorial (party)!
