A bit behind on posting. I have completed my bookmark and will update pictures soon. Just didn't want the blogosphere to forget I exist.
On a funnier note, I had a pretty good student quote last week. Kids were giving presentations on a variety of topics about the Civil Rights Movement- people, places, events. I had given the students instructions to try to use more compelling adjectives and adverbs in their PowerPoints. Everyone gets tired of seeing very, great, wonderful, etc. I got my wish. When discussing someone who a student would have normally as "very" educated, they instead had this: "He was a severely educated man." I burst out laughing, and had to stop the presenter and have them explain the word severely. They then sheepishly told me they didn't have a real reason for using it, only that it was listed in the thesaurus . I applauded their use of the thesaurus, and gently reminded them to be sure it makes sense in the context they use it.
