Fifth and Sixth Six Weeks
Vocabulary studies continue for all classes. Periods 1, 2, and 7 are still using the Wordly Wise list, but the lists are now given biweekly. Periods 3 and 8 are now doing SAT vocabulary work.
All classes will study the same grammar information that includes:
adjective and adverb clauses
compound, complex and compound-complex sentences
predicate nominatives and predicate adjectives
transitive and intransitive verbs
Writing lessons will focus on writing dialogue, a compare/contrast essay, and a news article relating to mythology. Each student will be required to submit an entry to be considered for the Beck literary magazine. Other writing assignments will be included.
If you don't know the subordinating conjunctions and relative pronouns, play the concentration game for practice.
