The Weekly Text: September 4, 2015

School begins Tuesday, September  8th here in New York City (and as Joey Ramone once said, the sun is out, and I want some!), so I’ll quickly publish these two takes on the word ally, as a noun and a verb, that I use to assist students in understanding these oft-used words. I emphasize to students that these are fundamental terms in their social studies vocabulary. You might want to take a look at the About Weekly Texts page above for information on the format of these two worksheets (what’s with the asterisks?), as well as the Focus on One Word Worksheets Users’ Manual. I generally mention in passing the word allied both as an adjective and past tense of the verb. Does allied need its own worksheet?

As always, I’d appreciate hearing from you if you did or did not find these worksheets helpful.
