Today we started our vocabulary program, Wordskills! Students will learn hundreds of word parts, which will unlock thousands of vocabulary words.
- Housekeeping. Students passed in their signed Policies and their Info Sheet (aka Personal Profile).
- WordSkills Notes. We learned two word parts today and one SAT word. We also learned a fancy name for black lung disease: pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. Notes can be found for each vocabulary lesson here, but students also take notes during class. Today we took notes on Lesson 1, #1-2. We also took notes on the SAT word ambivalent (ambivalence, to be ambivalent about, ambivalently). Absent students need to pick up the handout from me and come in at lunch/before school to get the notes!
- Conflict Notes. We continued taking notes on L1: Conflict Notes. Some classes got far enough in the notes to get homework, others did not.
HW: 2nd, 5th, and 6th periods only. Conflict in the Summer Assignment. Honors and Regular English have slightly different assignments, so beware when you download the document.
