The other day I found my officemate, the writing teacher, cutting out this gravestone. She was making a display of “dead words” to encourage young writers to use more creative and interesting vocabulary, but I liked it as an appropriate indication of my attitude towards a few classes who are having trouble getting themselves together.

After seeing how easily amused I was, she made me a copy of this one and another one that says “RIP Nice.” If I come into your classroom with that pinned to my chest, you know what’s up.
