Friday, March 24, 2000

Next Friday, March 24, you will spend the class period taking a spelling test. There will be three parts to the test.

On part one I will ask you to identify some of the misspellings that have been made on Communications papers throughout this school year. You will need to recognize "wrong word" misspellings, as well as misspellings that do not form words.

On part two youíll need to write out correctly spelled words for each misspelling youíve identified. In part three Iíll ask you to use the "wrong word" misspellings correctly in properly written and proofread sentences.

The best way to prepare for this test is to familiarize yourself with the list of misspelled words Iíve posted on the class web site. You might try using it to make flash cards to use with each other, or with your parents. Put the correctly spelled word on one side, and incorrect spelling(s) on the other. You can also practice picking out the "wrong word" errors as Iíve had you do on numerous spelling quizzes throughout the school year.

To get to the spelling list, click on the "Whatís been misspelled?" link at the class web site.

If you do not have web access at home, you can print a copy of the list from the schoolís Internet computer.

On Friday, March 31, youíll take a test based on assignments 13 and 14. However, instead of looking up information, then using it in some way, Iíll give you the information to use and ask you to use it to answer a question. Iíll also ask you to format citations using the sample formats Iíve given you for various reference types.

The best way to prepare for this test is to use the information from our class discussions to prepare answers for part 2 to all questions on assignments 13 and 14. If you werenít taking notes when we reviewed the questions in class, Iíve posted my answers on the class web site. Look for assignments 13 and 14 in the Tracking Down Answers section of the site.
