Week 2, Day 2
Objective: Expand vocab through reading, listening, and discussing; rely on context to determine word meaning; and apply meanings of prefixes, roots, and suffixes in order to comprehend.  

  1. SAT Quiz #1
  2. Bell Work: Communication plays a big part in life.  When someone has the option of speaking or writing, when does he or she choose the latter?  In complete sentences, write the circumstances or situations in which writing is preferred over speaking and why.  (Write at least 40 words.  Use at least two SAT words.  Underline every 10th word.)
  3. Week 2 SAT Words
    1. You can find the new words and a link to the Quizlet Study Set at the top of the page by clicking on the "SAT Words of the Week" tab.
    2. Your SAT Quizzes are cumulative.  This means that each week you will be tested on the current words and the previous week's words.  They build up.  This means you can't just cram/memorize the words and definitions for the test and then forget it.  You will be tested on each word up to 5 times!!!!  I am trying to move this knowledge from short-term memory to long-term memory!
  4. Open Strategies for Unlocking Word Meaning
  5. In another tab, open and make a copy of Strategies for Unlocking Word Meaning Worksheet
  6. Save a copy of 250 Stems and Roots.
  7. Work with a partner and complete the worksheet listed in #3.  
  8. When finished, turn it in here 
    1. Due tomorrow by 4:00pm.  
  9. Important Note:
    1. Sr. Galvan and I have started putting grades in SkyWard.  If an assignment is showing as an "*" or "asterisk" it is NOT missing.  The assignment just hasn't been graded.  If it is showing up as a "0" or "zero" the assignment HAS been graded and you did not turn it in.  Please let your parents know this.  SkyWard will send out alerts and even though I haven't marked it as "missing" it will say that it is.  I appreciate you staying on top of your grades and taking care of business.  We will do our best to make sure that things get graded in a timely manner.  
  10. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to email me at  I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.
