Guidance will be visiting on Monday and Tuesday, so I'm keeping our plans flexible. Whatever time we are afforded will be focused on True Grit. The nature of the work will depend entirely on the amount of time we have. I hope we are able to make something things to help us with True Grit. I sure do enjoy making things and seeing how making things helps others to understand.
Here are some absolutes.

Study. Roots Quiz #1 Monday/Tuesday next week. (We should have taken this last week.)
Use the Quizlet to Help You Study.
Know the Root & What It Means.
Other Evidence of Learning: In addition to the taking the quiz, you may want to create a roots product that demonstrates your understanding of the roots and what they mean. Some of us struggle with quizzes as a way of proving we know something, but if we get a chance to use our knowledge, we knock it out of the park. Consider writing a story, a set of instructions, making a video, recording a podcast, building something on Minecraft or in LEGO, recording a song, drawing a comic strip, or some other way of showing me that you know those roots and what they mean in a way that shows you truly understand.
Due. Monday/Tuesday. 10.5-6.15
