Today we went through the list of parts of speech to remind ourselves of the functions of words. This is what we covered:
What we didn't cover, but will tomorrow:
D. Simple Sentence
E. Compound Sentence
F. Compound-Complex Sentence
So, of course, you can expect a quiz on these parts of speech in which you will have to identify the parts of speech for underlined words in given sentences.
Thank you for making my life better. I would hate to have to get up every morning and go to a job that I hate. With you, I don't have to; I get to have intelligent (and sometimes crazy) discussions with you about every subject under the sun. I get to see you understand concepts and explain your thoughts like you never have before.
Thank you for letting me be your teacher.
I wanted to let you know that Mr. Cashman and I are trying to get some face time with Chinua Achebe, who is in his eighties and currently an honorary professor at Brown. Think about meeting him when you read his book. Think about why he wanted you to know the events of this book and the Ibo people. What questions do you have for him? What characters do you understand not understand?
