vocabulary
Vocabulary
  • When I pass out an article, I will give you a few minutes to scan and you are to circle ALL words that are unfamiliar.
  • I will grade you based on effort. I do not believe you know the exact definition to ALL the words so you are to have words and/or phrases circled. Do not feel embarrassed for having a lot of words circled, it is showing me that you are putting in effort.
  • Also, do not circle words just to do the assignment. You will not receive credit! For example:
    • Name
    • The
    • A
    • Dog
  • In the back of the room, there is a board labeled “Word Wall” and dictionaries on the bookshelf. Over the course of the year you will be adding to the word wall.
vocabulary1
Vocabulary
  • During and after reading the article you will define the word on the paper.
  • The definition should not be a sentence but one or two words to help you recall the meaning.
  • These “vocabulary” words will be on tests and/or quizzes!
vocabulary example
Vocabulary Example
  • The response to 9/11 was swift, with President Bush declaring a war on terror. Citing the need for new rules of warfare to tackle a faceless, stateless enemy, the administration adopted two key strategies. First, taking pre-emptive action against potential threats, before attacks on the U.S. could be carried out. And second, actively promoting the spread of democracy around the world, especially in the Middle East, as a long-term antidote to terrorism. "Our war on terror begins with Al Qaeda, but it does not end there," President Bush said a week after the attacks.

Highlighting
  • Names
  • Dates
  • Quotes

    • You are not to highlight the entire article! Highlighting is meant to your life easier. Usually the information that you highlight helps to answer the questions.
