PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Let students have writing fun while learning to avoid clichés in their writing.

This 6-page reproducible activity
• introduces students to CLICHÉS
• shows the PROBLEMS with using them in writing
• gives EXAMPLES of how to CORRECT them

Then it presents a 20-item list of clichés, which students “translate” into wording that is not trite.

A separate activity presents a 2-page story filled with clichés. Students use their new awareness to identify the clichés and then correct them.

ANSWER KEYS are included.

This activity is suitable for middle school, high school, and college classes. Created by Susan Thurman.
