Chalk Talk: Words and Phrases to Avoid in Writing
If your child asks for your help in proofreading a writing assignment, be on the lookout for words and phrases kids often use, but shouldn’t. Phrases like “kind of” and “sort of” have no business in writing assignments, especially if the assignment is persuasive in nature. Such phrases make the writer sound as though they are unsure of what they are saying. Similarly, vague words like “things” and “stuff” should never be used – help your child find a more specific word to strengthen their description or argument. Finally, look for phrases like “It’s just my opinion, but…” The purpose of a writing assignment is to express one’s opinion or point of view. The reader will understand that the argument presented is the author’s opinion, so your child doesn’t need to explicitly state it as such. Helping your child avoid these common mistakes will improve their writing as well as their grades.
