Woe Is I, Jr., Lessons: Chapter 11

I have written lessons to accompany Woe Is I, Jr., a grammar handbook for kids. You can read my introductory comments here.

Chapter 1
Chapter 2
Chapter 3
Chapter 4
Chapter 5
Chapter 6
Chapter 7
Chapter 8
Chapter 9
Chapter 10

1. Read chapter 11 and do what O'Conner suggests.

2. Browse this site which lists clichés in alphabetical order.

3. Be a PCI (Private Cliché Investigator), looking and listening for them in print and conversation. Make a page of at least five clichés you see and/or hear, illustrating each one.

4. Write an advertisement for a product, real or imagined, using clichés until you're blue in the face. (Oh, there's one!)

5. Please consider sharing your advertisement or your best clichés in the comments.

Go to Lesson 12.
