  2. Quick! Like a bunny. Look through your Lesson 16 packet and find the vocabulary word + definition that you think you’re most likely to forget. On your sticky note, write the word and one of its definitions. Sign your name—legibly. When you finish, silently walk into the hall and post your note on the outside of the classroom door—don’t cover other sticky notes. While you’re waiting for others to finish, study and work on Lesson 16. Sticky Note Door Decor

  3. The Power of words

  4. Ideas Organization Sentence Fluency Word Choice Voice Conventions Six Traits

  5. Hannibal Buress • Author of “Wack Writing” • Born in 1983. • Lives in NYC. • If Steven Wright, Mos Def and Dave Chappelle had a baby, that would be disgusting, but it would sound like Hannibal Buress. -- Chris Rock

  6. Listening for word choice • First time: Just listen. Try to notice the words Buress criticizes. • Second time: Listen and read. Circle (or highlight) the words Buress criticizes. (Look for the italicized parts.)

  7. Wack Writing • diversity • Inaccurate use of the word—diversity on campus requires more than a single visit by a minority comedian • comedic • Redundant and unecessary (word choice is lazy): all jokes are comedic • streets • Naïve—Buress meant it ironically and the reporter didn’t catch that • even food • Lazy writing: “even” shows surprise about food jokes; “food” requires development

  8. Wack Writing • exclamation point • comparing people to punctuation is bland, uninteresting, and careless • price range of $2,000 • idea problem, more than a word choice problem • everyone • Imprecise and totally inaccurate—it’s impossible for everyone to get what they want, especially from one event

  9. On Your Square • Reflect on your own word choice. Are you careful about it? Do you care? Explain and give an example. • Speculate: For real, how can you improve your word choice? Give an example. • Predict: For real, will you think about word choice when you write? In what circumstances? Why?
