Hi, everybody. This week, our young scholars will be writing their Cultural Research papers using MLA citations and format. Students must use at least three sources in their research, and be sure to use the appropriate in-text citation giving credit to the source whenever quoted or paraphrased. Here is a link to a great source for MLA formatting:
We are still reading The Contender, by Robert Lipsyte. The first vocabulary tests have been graded. All grades should be in Gradespeed soon. Here are the new words, some from the book, some from the ACT list of common words:
PUGILIST, ANTISEPTIC, REGIMEN, ALIBI, LINIMENT, CAMARADERIE, BENEVOLENT, EPHEMERAL, FORTUITOUS, NONCHALANT. MUNDANE, PRECOCIOUS.
Thanks for checking in! - Mr. Nettles
In My Class:
All students are expected to behave as scholars. I am dedicated to fostering a safe, supportive, fun, rigorous academic environment. I love my job, I love your kids, and I'm going to do my best for them. I expect them to do their best as well.
