Choice Words - Make Them "Hear" You!

In this one-time class, we will compare written pieces to determine what word choice has to do with vivid composition and revise to improve composition with specific word choice.

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will look for compelling, specific verbs and nouns in excerpts of excellent writing.
Students will identify humdrum nouns and verbs used in first drafts.
Students will have a system for finding and using specific nouns and verbs in their own writing.
Students will share their examination of writing with their peers.
Students will  produce a better draft of a personally written paragraph or sentence.
This is a one-time class so there is no homework assigned.  It is my hope, however, that students will want to read their own writing with the purpose of making it more vivid.
Students will need pencils or pens and paper.
There are no letter grades for this class.  Students can be assessed for their attention and participation, of course.  Parents may request such a response.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
