Our first objective is to review the proper punctuation and capitalization of titles.  After today's bellwork, we should be able to properly punctuate and capitalize titles or books, chapters, movies, songs, etc.

CCSS:  L.11-12.2:  Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing.

Next, we will examine week 8's vocabulary words and roots.  We will do them a little differently today.  Instead of just having a list from Miss Lamb of words and roots, we will discover which words have which roots.  Using the following steps:

1.  Define your word.
2.  Find other word-mates.
3.  Create the PERFECT sentence demonstrating the meaning of the word.
4.  Find classmates with the same root.
5.  Determine your root's meaning.
6.  Be prepared to share with the class!

Our roots and words are:
PLAC:  complacent, placebo, placid
GRAT:  gratuitous, ingratiate, ingrate
DOC/DOCT:  docile, indoctrinate, doctrine
TEMPER:  temper, temperance, intemperate

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.
