Cast Out Common Words: Better Than Good

Watch Story Pirate friends Lauren and Andy as they cast out common word “Good” and replace it with richer, more descriptive words.

Story Pirates surveyed classroom teachers and administrators to find out which words their 3rd-5th grade students were overusing in their writing. If the students could “cast out” certain words or phrases from their vocabulary and replace them with richer, more descriptive words, which words should be the first to go?

Each episode of SPTV includes one of these educational lessons. Catch full episodes of Story Pirates on the Michigan Learning Channel.
