Poe Vocab Quiz #2 Corrections – due Tuesday 10/29.

For every incorrect answer on the Poe Vocabulary Quiz #2, please do the following:

HANDWRITE NEATLY AND LEGIBLY. IF HANDWRITING IS AT ALL MESSY, YOU WILL BE ASKED TO REDO THE ENTIRE ASSIGNMENT.

1. Write out the word AND part of speech.

2. Write out the entire definition.

3. Write out at least one synonym and one antonym (which must be the same part of speech as the word!).

4. Write out an original sentence that demonstrates you know what the word means and how to use it correctly.

5. Draw a picture that illustrates the word and its definition. Draw an icon or symbol for the word. Please don’t illustrate the sentence; rather, draw a simple picture that will make you remember the word and its definition.

If you missed a word more than once, then please do the above more than once, each time giving a different sentence and picture.

Corrections are due: Tuesday 10/29.

Vocabulary Quiz “Corrections”

For every question you missed on the vocabulary quiz for any reason, please do the following:

HANDWRITE

1. The word.

2. The part(s) of speech.

3. The definition(s).

4. One of the sentences in which it’s used in American Born Chinese with page number.

5. A new, original sentence of your own showing you know what the word means and how to use it. Do not use the same sentence you used on the quiz or on the sentence/drawing assignment you had for these words.

6. Underline the word in the sentences (from the book and your own).

If you missed a word more than once, DO ALL OF THE ABOVE for each time you missed it. Rewrite the word, recopy the part of speech, definition, and sentence from book, and come up with another original sentence.

Neatness, handwriting, grammar and spelling all count.

Sentences and Pictures for ABC Vocabulary

On piece of paper prepared in class today, for each of the ten vocab words plus the two words you chose for yourself, do the following:

1. A picture that represents the word, as if you are making an icon of the word. Draw a picture that would make you think of the word or that would explain the word.

2. A sentence with the word, showing you know what it means and how to use it.

The picture and sentence are not related. The picture should stand alone apart from the sentence and still make sense. You’re not illustrating the sentence, but rather coming up for a picture of the word and then separately coming up with a sentence for the word.

You may change the form or tense of the words.

Due: Monday 9/16.
