Self-selected Vocabulary


Directions: During the research paper unit, I would like our activity at the beginning of class to consist of mini-presentations of vocabulary you encounter in your daily lives.

Step 1: Locate your name and the date you present on the calendar below.

Step 2: Choose a word that you encounter in your daily reading that you do not know the definition of.

Step 3: Under the discussion tab on this page, create a post where you define your chosen word, use it (creatively) in a sentence, and provide a picture/video/link/etc. that helps clarify the definition of the word.

Step 4: Briefly present your word, definition, sentence, and findings at the beginning of class during your assigned date.
