May 14, 2014

Today we took a reading quiz over an article about the spread of the drug methamphetamine in Appalachia. If you missed it because you were absent, please come in on Friday during lunch to make it up.

We spent the rest of the period reading, discussing, and watching the film version of Scenes 3 – 6 of Act II of Romeo and Juliet.

Important Announcements:

  • I gave you all a review of sentence structures (simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex), which will be due on Friday. We’ll also have a short quiz over those sentences types on Friday.
  • I also gave you the last set of vocabulary words for the year, from the second half of R&J. We will not have a vocab quiz over these, but you do need to write sentences (five simple, five compound, five complex, and five compound-complex) to turn in on Monday. These words will be on the final!
  • The last WB discussion guide is due tomorrow. You’ll finally get to find out what happened to Jessup!


If you’d like to get a leg up on studying for the final, you can look at the vocabulary lists (on the website, in case you don’t have yours anymore – I also made one master list with all of the words).
