What we did in class, today – After taking in-class Vocabulary Quiz 2, students worked on vocabulary cartoons 1) as a method to reinforce vocabulary and 2) as part of the vocabulary competition. Congratulations to Alaa K. in Section 6 and Khaled in Section 55, the winner of this week’s vocabulary competition. Afterwards, we discussed summarizing and paraphrasing.
- A summary contains only the main points from an article or a paragraph. It does not contain details. You use your own words, and you must cite the author, title, and publication date.
- A paraphrase is where you use your own words to tell all the ideas – and details – in an article or paragraph.
- Neither a summary nor a paraphrase contains your ideas or your beliefs.

- Finish writing the body of Essay 3. It should start with the topic sentence followed by a summary of your cause. Then, add an example. Your paragraph should be at least 125 words in length.
- Read at least four Achieve3000 articles this week and do the corresponding Activities before midnight on Friday, Nov. 14.
What we will do in class on Wednesday, Nov. 12 – We will add citations for the articles we summarized and paraphrased and begin revising Essay 3.
