The Weekly Text, September 8, 2017

School started this week, and I’d hoped to get something big and splashy up for this Friday. Indeed, I’m working on a revision this Weekly Text, from August 28, 2015, on Daniel Willingham’s First Demonstration of Memory, but I’m not quite done with it. However, circumstances intruded, so I have very little to offer this week. Next Friday begins National Hispanic Heritage Month for 2017, so I’ll be posting, as last year, four readings and comprehension worksheets in observance of its four week span.

Because I work in a business-themed high school in the Financial District in New York City, I found it necessary to develop these two context clues worksheets on the words wholesale and retail relatively early on in my tenure here. They’re used as adjectives and adverbs in these exercises. Should you choose to engineer these worksheets further, these words can be used as verbs and nouns as well.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
