I’ve attached the list of SAT words. You need to select 5 words and create a slideshow to present to the class outlining the words. The slides NEED to include the following:
- The word itself
- The definition
- The root of the word (Where did it come from?)
- Suffixes and prefixes.
- Synonym(s) and antonym(s)SAT Vocab Words
This assignment is worth 25 points. (5 vocab words x 5 requirements on the slides)

Genius Hour-# 7-The Pitch Requirments

9th Lit: Your sole required assignment over the break is to come up with your claim for your argumentative essay and brainstorm 3 pieces of evidence to support your claim.
Your essay prompt is to argue which path is the best to take after high school: 4-year college, 2-year college, trade/tech school, entrepreneurship, or military.
Your claim and evidence need to be written down on the graphic organizer I passed out in class today. I’m attaching a copy here for those students who were absent.

If you would like, you have the opportunity to revise your short stories for a better grade. You must follow these steps:
- Email me or Ms. Mapp (if you are in 2nd block), and let one of us know that you would like us to edit your story again.
- Copy and paste your story from Google Docs into a Microsoft Word document. (This will assist with grammar, punctuation, and spelling mistakes not caught by Google Docs)
- Print your final draft to bring in on Monday when we get back, or save to a flash drive or your email so we can print at school.
Please, if you have any questions at all, email me! I can’t help if I don’t know there is a problem. Have a great break!!!
