Brit Lit Vocabulary

AMNESTY WEEKfrom now until Wednesday, May 10 any late vocabulary may be turned in for 70% of the total points.  Since I’m not interested in busy work, I’ve altered the Vocabulary Square assignment.  This is how you can earn 70% and take out the zero:

  1. Label the top of the lined paper with the lesson # and your name.
  2. Write compound and complex sentences for each of the words.
  3. Turn in to the basket by the end of the day on Wednesday, May 10

New Policy for Vocabulary Squares:  VoSqs are due the DAY of the quiz by 3:30 PM.  Since life happens to all of us, you may turn VoSqs in one day late for less points and THAT’S IT.  The purpose of vocabulary squares is to learn the words!  If you’ve already taken the test, the assignment turns into busy work and fourth quarter is too short.
