Ascent (n), Assent (vi)

At this point, I’ve settled sufficiently into my new job to begin publishing a round of blog posts beyond the Weekly Text. So, as I sit in my classroom first thing in the morning, long before students arrive, I’ll offer these five homophone worksheets on the noun ascent and the verb assent. The verb, apparently, is only used transitively; that said, it’s worth mentioning that assent can also be used as a noun. An exemplary sentence might be something like “Mike gave his assent to the zombies to crash in his garage for one night only.”

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.
