Study ten words per week to be quizzed on each Wednesday. Quizzes will be as follows: I will pronounce a word and you will spell it correctly, define it, and use it in a sentence with contextual clues that help define it further. I suggest you know the part of speech; if the word functions equally as two parts of speech (a noun and a verb, for example) know the meanings for each. When you write your sentences, you may use various forms of the word: adjective, adverb, or any verb tense, provided you use the form correctly. The quizzes are worth 20 points each.
