English 12 Vocabulary

You will have vocabulary quizzes at the beginning of class every Friday. You will also receive the following week’s vocabulary study sheet every Friday. If you are absent, I expect you schedule an appointment with me to make up your vocabulary quiz during lunch or after school on the day of your return. Otherwise, you will receive a zero on your quiz.

Vocabulary quizzes are worth 32 points every week. There will be sixteen questions on each quiz, and each question will be worth two points.
