My classes will begin the study of poetry following spring break.
Each week, the Pre-AP students have a SAT vocabulary list. The students are to look the ten words up in a dictionary, write the part or parts of speech for that word, and a definition they understand for each part of speech. On Friday, the students have a test in which they fill in the blanks of sentences using context clues found in the sentence and determine the part of speech used for each blank. They are also given the vocabulary worksheets listing the next week's words.
It will be necessary to do some work with the different areas of TAAS: summarizing, main idea, fact and opinion, drawing conclusions, sequencing, and context clues.
