Both 8th and 9th grade students took their first summative vocabulary assessment of the year.
9th – there will be an entire class re-take of this summative as the outcomes were lower than expected. Some of this is due to the new format (matching words with definitions and choosing the right word to complete the sentence- word banks provided) and length. However, many students have not completed the weekly vocabulary assignments and may not have reviewed the vocabulry by studying or taking the online review quizzes.
S+ – Any student scoring below a 3 on the summative can complete the re-take form and scheduling a time, by Monday October 15th, to come in and try again. We will be starting another class novel, Flowers for Algernon Monday. Do not forget to watch and take notes on the Prezi.
