On this day in 1885, Louis Pasteur and Emile Roux administered the first successful anti-rabies vaccine. Today in 1933, Major League baseball held its first All-Star Game at Comiskey Park in Chicago. Today is Malawi Republic Day, which commemorates both Malawi’s independence from Britain in 1965 and its becoming a republic in 1966. Malawi was formerly known as Nyasaland; remains of some of the earliest humans have been found in Malawi. Finally, today in 1854 the Republican Party of the United States was founded.

This week’s Text is a complete lesson plan on the Latin word root agri. It means, crop, production, and field. I begin this lesson with this context clues worksheet on the noun farmer.

Nota bene, please, that I have previously posted this worksheet by itself without a lesson plan or accompanying short exercise.

That’s it. I don’t know about where you are, but it has been very hot here. If you live or work in New York City and environs, I hope you’re staying cool.

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.
