Today in Mrs. Smiths class we walked in to the average hello. We did the usual response with one person saying hello back. After this we pulled out our planners and wrote down our homework, like usual of course. Our homework is to come see Mrs. Smith or go to writing lab on Tuesdays and Thursdays to get your TIB essay edited and helped so you get a better grade on it. Also tomorrow, Thursday December 9, is our last day to get our visual turned in for our presentation on our essays. Then, we had to pull out all of our vocab cards from semester one and all these words are… Misogynist is a person who hates woman. Misanthrope is a person who hates all people. Miscreant is someone who does evil deeds. Bibliophile means a lover of books or collector of books. Philanthropist is a lover of people someone who loves to do good deeds. A philosopher lives by logic and lives off reason someone who thinks about the world. Malevolent is wishing bad things to happen to others just like a misogynist. Dismal is someone who is depressed and gloomy about life. Maleficent is someone who intends to hurt someone. Benevolent is someone who wishes well upon people. Benefactor is someone who supports others in any way they can. Benediction is a blessing. Study these words because we will have a test on Monday and part of Tuesday on finals. Study the definition, antonym, and the part of speech for the test on these cards. After we went over all of the words class was five minutes from getting out and then we put our computers away and class was dismissed.
