Day 73!

Happy Tuesday!

I apologize that I cannot be in class today; I am sure you are both really broken up about it too!

Today, I want you to start by revising your research essays. Look through the comments and check list that you received, and make your revisions based on the feedback given. Take your time in doing this, and make sure you make good strong revisions! Please print and turn in your revisions to the 3rd hour tray when you have completed it.

Once you have finished that, please move on to the vocabulary for this week. You can either break them up and do three each like we did last time, or you can do them all on your own. That is up to you. If you choose to break them up, make sure you each take a turn teaching the other person about your new words.

The words for this week are:


This time, as you present, each person must have a visual presentation that includes: 

  • definition of the word IN STUDENT FRIENDLY LANGUAGE. I do NOT want to see the definitions verbatim from Google. 
  • part of speech
  • image to help remember the word
  • an example sentence that gives context clues about the word
  • associated word to help remember 

The words will be posted on the Quizlet in the next day or so.  If you have not done so already and would like to have access to the list, please click on that link and ask to join the class!
