Homework for the Weekend - A Day - 21 April 2017

English II

The homework for the weekend is to study and prepare for your vocabulary quiz on Tuesday. You should know not only the meaning of the words and their part of speech but also the important information about how the words are put together (word parts, prefixes, suffixes). I'll be giving you some words on this test which are not from this unit, but you should be able to navigate them with your skills.

I'll also have a new DVD player next week so that we can watch our film after the quiz.

Russian I

You also have a quiz on Tuesday that you need to prepare for. The quiz will cover singular/plural declensions for all genders with nouns, adjectives, and possessive pronouns. Make sure that you have studied in order to review. There will also be a reassessment section on identifying and translating adverbs in Russian (you have your previous quiz back, so you know what to study there).

Advanced Russian

Students in Russian II will want to work this weekend to complete weather reports on Google Classroom. Given the struggles we had today with technology we will go back one more time (Tuesday) to work on these. You should have a fair amount of the work done so that I can give you feedback on Tuesday before our presentations on Thursday.

Students in Russian III will want to complete exercises 11.13 and 11.14 which focus on using and translating phrases with gerunds. We'll review this as the way that we will cover this information.

Russian IV will want to continue working through the essay on White Nights with the expectation of having one additional session to complete it.

Keep in mind that we will have a quiz on new grammar on Monday, May 1st.
