Mrs. Tatum's Ninth Grade Literature
As you read texts for this class in your
text book or independent novels, when you come across a word you do not know, highlight the word in the text if you can.
You are expected to record
10 words every two weeks
Do not record technical words such as literary device terms.
Look for words you can add to your own vocabulary.
DIRECTIONS FOR YOUR JOURNAL:
On the first page of the vocabulary journal section in your interactive notebook, write the date you begin your first entry.
Complete the entry questions below.
For each word you choose to add to your vocabulary journal, complete a new row in the graphic organizer.
Don’t be afraid to use multiple lines per word! You
write at least a couple of sentences in the final question, “What effect did the author produce by choosing these words?”
When you run out of room, simply start a new graphic organizer on the next page. When you complete the required 10 words for this journal entry, start a new organizer on the next page.
