Today we talked about our vocabulary words from the second section of In Cold Blood. Then we discussed this PowerPoint over how to use semicolons:
Your homework for tonight is to write vocabulary sentences using semicolons. #1: The first 10 sentences must use semicolons to connect two sentences (independent clauses). #2: The second 10 sentences must use semicolons to connect two sentences (independent clauses) with a conjective adverb. #3: The last 10 sentences must use semicolons for lists. Turn this is through Turnitin.com – no paper copies will be accepted. You have until 12:30 PM on Friday, so you should be able to use the school wifi at lunch if you need to.
