We asked secondary teachers: “What are the phrases in student writing that make you cringe, wail, and gnash your teeth?” From hundreds of responses, we narrowed it down to a carefully chosen list of Outlawed Words and Phrases. Here are 3 great ways to use it: 1) as an Editing Guide 2) as an “Outlawed Phrases” Bulletin Board, and 3) as a Flip It! activity (e.g. Share the poster with students and challenge them to create their own list of 11 rules for writing powerful essays.).

Josiah Horner (Sept 15, 1849 – Sept 27, 1927) "Frank M. Canton" was a famous lawman, gunslinger, cowboy & an outlaw. In 1871, he started robbing banks & rustling cattle. In 1874, he got into a gunfight with two Buffalo Soldiers, killing one & wounding the other. In 1877, he was arrested for robbing a bank in Texas. He escaped from custody & moved to Ogallala, & took up a herd of cattle. While in Nebraska, he officially changed his name & vowed to give up his outlaw ways.
