Semester 2 brings a few changes to our Vocabulary procedure.  There is a revised schedule for the words we will look at each week. 

You have been assigned two vocabulary words for which you will create slides.  Here is the information about that.     Your slides are due on Friday, January 11.  They should be a part of this presentation when you are finished.  Find the slide for your word, or find your name in the notes section of the slide.

We looked at different points of view and defined "stream of consciousness."  For Monday, you are to read "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" by Ambrose Bierce.  Be ready for a quiz.
