First on our agenda is to complete the vocabulary for this week.  You will essentially be writing your own quiz, so keep that in mind as you create your sentences.  

OBJECTIVE:  To know and understand a new set of words and their roots.

Our roots and words are:
ULTIMA:  ultimate, penultimate, ultimatum
FIN:  infinite, definitive, infintesimal
NOV:  novel, novice, innovative
PRIM:  primal, primeval, primacy

CCSS: Language 4. Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and 
phrases by using context clues and analyze meaningful word parts.

Next, we will finish reading The Crucible Act II.  We will continue with our examination of INTEGRITY, INFIDELITY, BLAME, and SHAME.  For our end of act assessment, we will individually look for an example of each of these instances in the text and, using direct textual references, write about how each instance is displayed.  Miss Lamb will give you further instructions.  When you finish this, you will examine the characters we studied in Act I, providing more post-it note descriptions of their motivations, conflicts, personalities, and effects on the plot of the story.

OBJECTIVE:  To correctly site the text to support our examples of integrity, infidelity, blame, and shame in Act II of The Crucible.

CCSS:  Literature 11-12.1:  Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
