Get Voc 9 into notebook :  LINK HERE TO VIDEO
All of Grammar done in Schoology

I checked Playposit before I left Wednesday, and many students do not have all of ACT III done yet.  If it glitches at home (we talked about this), then do something that may help you for the quiz you're about to get.  Find a different audio, a text with help aids, etc. online to help you.  Do not do NOTHING if you can't get playposit to work.  **For some of you, this quiz will determine if you get a progress report.
