 Today's Learning Objectives  * Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown words. * Write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence. 


Flocabulary Vocabulary Today we are going to begin using Flocabulary's vocabulary program. Each week you will be presented with a new set of vocabulary words, as well as engaging videos, exercises, games and quizzes that make learning new words fun. This week's words are: 


anguish / boisterous / capacity / commentary / continuous / cumulative / erupt / factor / inept / intimidate / marvel / maximum / painstaking / restrain / unanimous

After watching the video a couple of times, study the words and their meanings and work on the activity Vocabulary - Unit 1 (Bottom of the Ninth) - Fix the Mistake, which can be found in your Language Arts Google Classroom.

Write an Argument Essay: The Conclusion Paragraph  It's nearly time to put your Argument Essay to bed and write the conclusion paragraph. This is your opportunity to make your case one last time, reminding readers of your main points while making a strong final impression. You want to finish with a strong sentence.  Looking for an idea? Try referring to your hook, finding a quote, or inspiring your readers.
