Vocabulary Words

Our vocabulary assignments this year will be completed online at http://www.vocabulary.com. There, I will build vocabulary lists (posted below) that I would like you all to practice. Your responsibility is to use the time I give you in class and also some time at home to review, practice, and master the words on this and other lists I give you.

You will receive credit (RP in the JN) based on how much of each list you complete. I may also periodically quiz you on the vocabulary for each unit at the beginning of class. These will also be a chance for you to get RP.

Resource Points for completing vocabulary assignments will be assigned according to the chart below.

To access, review, and practice the vocabulary lists, follow the procedure below.

  1. Go to www.vocabulary.com.

  2. Click on “Login” in the top right-hand corner of the page.

  3. Choose the option “Login with Facebook” and enter the required information (make sure you are signed in as you and not someone else).

  4. After you have logged in, go to enter the URL or search for the list you want. Next, click the button in the top-right that reads "Begin learning this list".

  5. Click “Review” to view the words on the list and see their definitions, learn how to pronounce them, and read how they are used.

  6. If you feel you are ready (or just want to give it a try,) click on “Practice”. This feature will ask you questions and you get to try to answer. The website tracks your progress and keeps quizzing you until you have mastered all of the words. As long as you are logged in, it will show you the percentage you have mastered (top-right). This is what you need to show me to get your award.

Happy vocabulary learning!
