Vocabulary and Conflict: Day 3

Today we started our vocabulary program, Wordskills! Students will learn hundreds of word parts, which will unlock thousands of vocabulary words.

  1. Housekeeping. Students passed in their signed Policies and their Info Sheet (aka Personal Profile).
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
