Language Arts Teacher Quizzes & Trivia

Use your notes and handouts from class to answer these questions. Consider the information covered by these questions to be important. You will see this information again. Also, when you write your answers, remember that this is not an email or IM to a friend. This is school work (for your language arts teacher). Use correct grammar, capitalization, spelling, and punctuation. Write in complete sentences and include detail to support your answers. It's fine with me if you compose your answer in MS Word, use its editing and spelling tools to check yourself, then copy/paste your response into this quiz. I reserve the right to reject work that is not well edited or proofread.
