Triple Venn Diagram

It seems that more than a few of you still haven't turned in the Triple Venn Diagram from last week.  If you no longer have the materials for this assignment (3 articles, venn diagram handout, instructions), you can download them from the "handouts" page of this site.

Mrs. Cohen Absent

Due to a death in my family, I will be out of school from Friday, 1/26/18 to Tuesday, 1/30/18.  I will be back in school on Wednesday, 1/31/18.  I do not know who the sub will be, but please be kind to them. We will resume video and play peer evaluations on Wednesday.  Because of this, there will be no Grammar Goddess assignment next week. If I told your group to be prepared for live presentations on Monday, you have a two-day reprieve until Wednesday, when I expect to see your group present.

BUG IN DROPBOX PROGRAM!

There's a bug in the Dropbox program.  When too many people are trying to upload files at the same time, Dropbox gives you a message telling you to spend ten dollars for more space. DO NOT SPEND ANY MONEY. Just try uploading later.  If you still can't upload your video by 8:30pm, email me at ellen.cohen@lausd.net, and I'll tell you what to do. I did warn all of my classes about this.  Remember when I used the 405 freeway analogy? Well, continuing that same analogy, it's rush hour on Friday, and there's a ton of traffic. You had over two months for this project.

EXTRA CREDIT FOR VOCABULARY TEST

Please remember, the extra credit is due BEFORE the test on Wednesday.  In order for you to receive the extra credit, ALL the words must be done.  If you no longer have the Vocabulary Squares sheet, please download a new copy from the Handouts pages on my website.
