Day 42/67: Five Month GED, “Discrete What?” & Health Terminology (and a Note…)

     (Quick note: Dear Readers, this is nearly the end of my lesson plan series, which I am working to post so that the new Page listing these plans will have fresh links.  Then, we will return to our regularly schedules stories… -Shira)

     Adulting often requires understanding vocabulary, and how certain words have slightly different meanings when applied in a different context.   Countable things, like apples, are discreet items, while being discreet, as the grammar lesson will show, is different.  It is similarly important  to understand such distinctions in other areas, and how health care works, and why the Public Health Services are so important. 


Here is one of my favorite words that makes a key difference in math, science, health care, and even in English grammar, as the lesson will show!

 Week 11/18
Day 42, Week 11
Grammar: Context and confusing words
Area and the Pythagorean Theorem
Day 42 Exit Ticket
Discreet quantities
Being discreet, as in exercising discretion…

(Day 41Day 43)

Action prompts:

1.)  Explain why you think it is important to understand the different nuances of meanings of a word, aka different connotations, under various circumstances, like the word theory, or discrete?

2.) Write a book, story, blog post or tweet that uses those thoughts, and then, please tell us about it! If you write a book, once it is published please consider donating a copy to your local public library.
