Vocabulary in Context

Today’s class was relatively sparse in comparison to my typical lessons because the students in two of my four classes were selected to go into the Media Center in order to complete a survey on my effectiveness as an educator.  This survey data, which will become a part of my TKES (Teacher Keys Effectiveness System) evaluation for the year, sought to identify my instructional strengths and weaknesses.

As a result of this impact to two of my classes, I opted to push today’s scheduled quiz to tomorrow.  The quiz will cover chapters 1-11 in To Kill a Mockingbird and chapters 1-5 Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.

As a review and in preparation for the quiz, the students worked on vocabulary activities corresponding to their book of choice.  Those assignments can be found here.
