Course Overview:Language Arts 

   =====> Daily Global Grammar

In Language Arts, we try to start every day with a DGG.  Instead of correcting sentences, we correct the mistakes around us: poorly constructed sentences on signs, barely slang billboards, ghastly spelling on blog posts and unfortunate usage misuse.  Students can receive 1 extra credit point for each mistake they find around them.  They must take a photo of the mistake and turn a copy of it into me to count.  I will take these mistakes and use them for our DGG and for our wall of misuse.  

             =====> If you like grammar mistakes, you'll love this book: Poor Grammar

=====> Vocabulary Review

Extra Credit Opportunity: Students may sign up to complete a Unit Review PowerPoint or Jeopardy game for each of the vocabulary words.  The PowerPoint is due the Wednesday before the Unit test so that we can make sure it works and has the correct information.  The student will present his/her project to the class on Thursday, and we take the Unit test on Friday.  Students are only allowed to sign up for one Unit.
