Be sure to pick up your handout as soon as you enter. Get seated quickly at one of the desks that corresponds to the card you were given as you entered. I reserve the right to switch you if the cards are in your favor! Yes, we really are working today, so please be a willing participant. Heres what you need today: * Writing utensil * Looseleaf & orange Think-Tac-Toe sheet (Vocab. notes) **Pick up a copy of My Papas Waltz from under basket at your desks. This needs to be read, annotated, and completed for tomorrow. I can reflect on my test performance to determine what skills I need to improve and create an action plan to help further guide my learning. I can distinguish between nuances in word meaning. They are ramps between antonyms. They show relationships between adjectives or adverbs. (They are not used with nouns or verbs.) With your partner, sort the words in the clear plastic bags from: Most positive Most negative *Use hint from above to help; be ready to defend your array. your array. compassionate gentle unkind cruel spiteful compassionate gentle unkind cruel spiteful Most positive Most negative What do all of these words describe? Which of these words use a word part weve already discussed?

I use dictionaries and thesauri to gather words that discuss the same topic. I then examine their denotations and connotations to create an array, or range of meaning. Agreeable; good-hearted Displaying concern towards others Intending harm against others On an index card, record the following: 1. One thing you must remember in constructing your linear array. 2.
