Study Hall has moved to its own page. Click – The Study Hall – to go there.
It’s the one stop for sharing concerns (for yourself, for others, for anything) as long as they are concerns related to the class in some practical way.
“What can the study hall be used for?” you may ask. It can be used for many things.
- It can be a place to go over vocabulary, but it needn’t stop there.
- Sometimes, students share what they are enjoying about class, a project, or a book.
- You could post questions you have for your school mates.
- I, or other school mates, can answer your questions, give you suggestions, and keep this thing going for us all.

Thank you, Mr. Moshe
We had a day when groups discussed each other’s legends in an attempt to identify similarities and differences – sub-categories that the legends the group found could fit into.
For instance . . . this is hypothetical (I made this up) . . .
In the Native American Legends Group (eight members in the group), through discussion and sharing of what each group member found, this is how things could have turned out:
– 3 legends about seasons,
– 3 legends about the origin of life,
– 2 legends about healing.
This goal was to try to uncover a way to organize the presentations that groups will be putting together beginning when we return from the weekend.
So, according to what this gorup found out, they have a few ways to organize their presentation components when they return from break.
Remember everyone, preseentations must have the following slides: 1 Introduction Slide, 2 Slides per Legend, 1 Conclusion Slide, 1 References Slide.
Go to the following page to get the details on the next stage of the Legends project . . .
Hound of The Baskervilles – Legend Project Stage 2
Have fun with this. Fun is the only way to keep learning interesting.
Mr.Moshe, I was absent on wednesday, and that was the day we worked on the legends. Are we supposed to look up facts about the legend? Or did we just discuss our legends with our groups?

Hey… Mr.Moshe’ I think the1st period should be a disscussion of the class overall and NOT just the book, like maybe someone has a question about the homework or someone needs the vocab.This would be the place to go to and ask.=] Hope you like my idea message back.
Does anyone konw what website to go on for the the book PLEASE HELP ME?!!?!?!?!?!?!
Very good so far. I have one request – Would you all mind from this point on letting us know in what chapter (if possible) the word appears?
The first few words (intuitive, sundry, preclude, onerous, lackey) are not directly from the book.
And another thing . . . If a classmate has already posted information on a term, do not post identical information for that term. You can offer help in another way, though, in the form of different information: sample sentences the word is used in (with proper citation – of course).

We can understand his taking an evening stroll, but the
ground was damp and the night inclement.
i forgot the synonym for my word.

synonym: favorable; pleasant
cajoled (v.)–to persuade by flattery or promises
‘You may be cajoled into imagining that your own special trade
or your own industry will be encouraged by a protective tariff,
but it stands to reason that such legislation must in the long
run keep away wealth from the country, diminish the value of our imports, and lower the general conditions of life in this island.’
Would someone mind looking up these words for me? I offer extra credit for the work you put into this. To get the credit, you’ll have to pick one word (only one), and post the following: Word, Definition, Part of Speech, Sentence from the book, Synonyms.
