Revise "Tired Words" in literary analysis

We discussed "tired words" and how to avoid using them in our writing. They are words that are vague or so overused that they begin to lose their meaning. Students added a "Tired Word" thesaurus into their Writer's Handbook section of their binders.
Students completed their revised drafts (with no tired words) and turned in first draft, peer-editing sheet, and revised draft.
