This product/lesson was designed to remind students that the written work that they generate in school should be produced with an audience in mind.
The lesson offers the following two rules for the purpose of breaking the bad habit of abusing shortcuts:
Rule #1.) Don't refer to a subject with a pronoun without first naming the subject.
Rule #2.) Don't start a written response/composition with the following words: yes, no, maybe, because, or and.
Examples of how each rule may be applied are provided.
The lesson concludes with five short answer prompts.
