Week 4
Week 5
Week 6


ASSESSMENT
1.  I expect you to incorporate "The Hit Parade Words" into your timed writings and essays.  There will not be a formal written vocabulary test on these words ... however ... I will draw your name out of the "Cauldron of Calamity".  When chosen, you will be expected to define the word, say the part of speech, and use the word in a complete sentence.  If you chose to create flashcards, you may use these FLASHCARDS to either redeem lost points OR add extra credit points to a given word.
2.  We will have bi-weekly vocabulary tests on Week 1-6 words, as well as any other quizzes deemed necessary throughout the year.
3.  Your FLASHCARDS should include the WORD, PART OF SPEECH, A SENTENCE CONTAINING THE WORD, and SYNONYMS FOR THE WORD.
