I​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​n order to complete Quiz 1, you'll need the Money Words program. On the Money Words flash drive, you'll find an audio program and a PDF. Listen to the tracks that cover unparalleled (Word #4), ruminate (Word #6), and lucid (Word #9). Pay close attention to the pronunciation of each word, and listen for each of the synonyms and antonyms. Open the PDF as well, for it's important to know how to pronounce and how to spell each of the words. Quiz 1 will cover unparalleled (Word #4), ruminate (Word #6), and lucid (Word #9), plus the five synonyms and five antonyms for each. Quiz 1 will consist of the following: 1. Compose 1 sentence for unparalleled (Word #4), ruminate (Word #6), and lucid (Word #9), and then compose 1 sentence for 21 additional words (these 21 words must be selected from the synonyms and antonyms of unparalleled (Word #4), ruminate (Word #6), and lucid (Word #9), as heard/read in the Money Words program). Thus, Quiz 1 asks you to compose a total of 24 sentences. 2. When you upload your 24 sentences, make sure that each sentence uses a different word. In other words, you cannot have 24 sentences that simply use unparalleled. (You'd have one sentence for unparalleled, and then another for its synonym, matchless, and another for its synonym, peerless, and so on.) 3. These 24 sentences should be uploaded as a Microsoft Word doc, Google doc, or PDF. (Look toward the upper right of this page. Click on the blue Submit Assignment button.) 4. Make sure the 24 sentences that you compose are unique to you. In other words, they are native. They are original. If I copy one of your sentences and paste it into an Advanced Google Search, and if there's a match, then . . . Houston, we have a problem. (In truth, if a student chooses to plagiarize, that student will not only receive a failing grade but also be required to meet with the Mt. SAC Student Disciplinary Committee.) 5. Once you've chosen which 24 words you plan to use for Quiz 1, you have the option to pursue extra credit. The extra credit will be amassed in a discussion titled Quiz 1 Extra Credit. control z *Also, please note that on the Money Words PDF, it might list lipid as a synonym of lucid. That is not accurate. The word should be limpid. Quizzes will be Graded based on the following: Each word must be used correctly. If 24 words are used correctly in their respective sentences, and if the 24 words are the appropriate words from the Money Words program, then a student will earn 24/24. However, students will not earn points for the following: 1. WORD USE. If a word is used incorrectly, that word will not earn a point. For instance, one synonym of ruminate is deliberate. Let's say someone wrote the following: "He made a deliberate joke about my attention-deficit disorder, and it upset me." This won't work, as the meaning for deliberate, when used in the previous sentence, is not similar to ruminate. Instead, the synonym of ruminate should be used like this: "I had to deliberate over whether to tell him that his joke upset me or to simply let it go." Here's another example. One synonym of lucid is sound. However, let's say someone wrote the following: "I heard a sound downstairs, and I wondered if it was a burglar." That's not the right use of sound. If sound is a synonym of lucid, then we must use sound differently: "After the doctor explained how the symptoms are related to one another, his diagnosis seemed sound." 2. RUN-ONS. If a sentence is a run-on, that sentence will not earn a point. Run-ons typically present in two types: fused sentences and comma splices. Here's an example of a fused sentence: My friend's ability to play the cello is unrivaled that is why he was given a scholarship to Julliard. Here's how to fix it: My friend's ability to play the cello is unrivaled. That is why he was given a scholarship to Julliard. OR My friend's ability to play the cello is unrivaled, and that is why he was given a scholarship to Julliard. OR My friend's ability to play the cello is unrivaled; that is why he was given a scholarship to Julliard. Here's an example of a comma splice: The bartender, the manager, and the hostess greeted me with their masks pulled down to their chin, I was discombobulated. Here's how to fix it: The bartender, the manager, and the hostess greeted me with their masks pulled down to their chin. I was discombobulated. OR The bartender, the manager, and the hostess greeted me with their masks pulled down to their chin, and I was discombobulated. The bartender, the manager, and the hostess greeted me with their masks pulled down to their chin; as a result, I was discombobulated. If you are in danger of constructing run-on sentences, send your sentences to NetTutor (look to the left, in the course menu). Ask them to make sure you do not have any run-ons. 3. SLOPPINESS. Sentences that seem sloppy will not earn a point. Here's an example of sloppiness: In comparison to a mcdonalds big mac, a double double at inn out is unparalleled In the example, we are missing (among other things) an apostrophe, appropriate capitalization, and end punctuation. Anything that flirts with this sort of sloppiness will not earn a point. sad pig Each sentence should be organic. In other words, it should be free of pesticides. (Just kidding.) What I mean is this: each sentence should not come from the internet. It should come from your brain, from your heart. Make the sentence about you. (One technique in language acquisition is to take ownership of words. You can do this by assigning a personal memory to each word you learn. Notice, in my reply below, that each sentence is based on something that actually happened in my life. This is one of the many ways to make a sizable impression upon your brain, as you've attached the word to . . . you! Make sure that each of your sentences is based on something true about you or your experiences.) 1. Living with the Ivanovic family in Croatia for six weeks was an unparalleled experience. 2. I have a tendency to ruminate over what I failed to do correctly in a conversation and, specifically, what I must have done to derail it. (Notice how over, on, or about typically follow ruminate.) Lately, I've been ruminating about how realistic it is to expect 80% of Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine by July, 2021. According to my friend, Keish, who has ruminated on this for awhile, "If you look at the math, and you want to inoculate 80% of the USA for herd immunity, with two shots per person, at the current rate of 1 million per week, it will take over 10 years. To do it in 6 months, you have to give 3.5 million shots per day, or over 100 million per month." 3. I am especially lucid after my first cup of coffee; however, my lack of lucidity for the first 45 minutes of the day (when cortisol is supposed to be naturally produced by the body if the body can do without caffeine) is unnerving and bothersome.

AFTER you submit Quiz 1, you should know which 21 synonyms and antonyms you created sentences for. There should now be 9 synonyms and antonyms that you didn't create sentences for. 2. Take those 9 synonyms and antonyms, plus the 3 main words: unparalleled (Word #4), ruminate (Word #6), and lucid (Word #9). This should amount to 12 words. For each REPLY to someone else's Post or Reply in the Quiz 1 Extra Credit discussion that uses one of the 12 words, you are eligible for one extra-credit point. Once you've gotten one extra-credit point for one of the 12 words, that word is exhausted. In order to get a second extra-credit point, you must use another one of the 12 words. In other words, if you want to earn 12 extra-credit points, you must reply 12 separate times to your peers, making sure to use each of the 12 words. 3. How might this look? Perhaps it will begin with a trailblazer in the class who posts a sentence that does not have any of the words in it. It might read as follows: "I need coffee." giant coffee But now people can reply with a variety of things: "Agreed. My need for coffee is unrivaled, especially since I didn't get enough sleep last night." "True. Without coffee, my words are barely comprehensible to others."

(All of the words come from the Money Words program.) 5. I'll keep a separate log of your extra-credit points, and they'll flood your grade like a tsunami when, at the end of the class, it is determined that you have a C or higher. control z *Also, please note that on the Money Words PDF, it lists lipid as a synonym of lucid.
