October 22, 2014

Lots of announcements today!

  1. No new vocabulary words this week. Instead, you will have a test over the EMP words we have done so far on Monday. Theoretically, this shouldn’t be too difficult, because every word will be one that you have already scene. The intention here is to give you lots of chances to practice, because you will see these words again on your final exam in December. I’ll give you an optional review that should help you study.
  2. Homework for tonight is to read this short story: Blindness Story
  3. I’m extending the due date for the EMP Reading Guide 5 until Tuesday.

In class, we listened to two short This I Believe essays – here are those links:

We worked on pre-writing for our own TIB essays: WITSThisIBelievePre-WritingHandout2014-2
