Happy Monday, everyone! I hope y'all had a great weekend. I spent my weekend moving, so I'm super tired today. :/
Anyway, today for our warm-up we answered the questions, "What effect do advertisements have on our society? Are these positive or negative?" This was a lead into our project that we went over today. If you were absent, please come see me about the project. I have some instruction to add.
We took notes on rhetorical devices and were given flash cards for the first ten vocab words. YOU WILL HAVE A VOCAB QUIZ THIS FRIDAY! It's not a huge deal, just know your words. I'm attaching the words to this post. It won't be the same format as what I gave you in class, but it will be the exact definitions.
