This book is primarily designed for teachers of writing grades five through nine. With the help of this unit, your students will have fun as they lay to rest those words that weaken their writing!
The teaching unit includes teaching handouts and directions to hold your own DEAD WORD FUNERAL. On this special school day, your students will dress the part, act the part, and complete eulogies and obituaries for a word that they will commit to no longer using in writing assignments. Our entire unit contains samples of eulogies and obituaries, fill-in-the blank forms for writing a eulogy and obituary, “hymns” for the dead word funeral, student handouts explaining the project, a teacher rubric, and more! Weak Words Dead and Gone takes a cool, fun, and effective approach to teach kids to use strong words in their writing!
