I teach a writing class, and the program that we use has this concept of "banned words." Every few lessons, they'll give you a new word that is banned and you aren't allowed to use it in your writing. They'll go over a number of potential alternative words. For example, they might ban "eat," and suggest "munched," "chewed," "gnawed," "devoured," "nibbled," etc. The idea isn't that there's anything wrong with using the word "eat" in real writing, but they want kids to practice using more specific, meaningful words instead of that particular one.
So a couple of weeks ago, the kids had the option to write their own version of a fairytale, Bible story, whatever. One girl chose to do the creation story from the Bible. In her rough draft, though, she used a banned word, "said." I circled it and wrote "banned" above it, so she'd remember that it was a banned word and go look up alternative choices.
This week I read the kids' final copies of their stories. Hers included the line, "And God banned, 'Let there be light!' and there was." It took me a minute to figure out what was going on, then I had trouble keeping a straight face.
