Thread Name: BS: Duct tape
Subject: RE: BS: Duct tape
I give students the following four words and ask them to use the words in a sentence that 1) doesn't just list them and 2) makes sense.

Defeat
Deduct
Defense
Detail

I wait a day and listen to their answers. I applaud their answers. Then I give them the following: Defeat of deduct went over defense before detail. Always good for a groan.
