Unit 3:Lesson B

We talked about life lessons when we began the unit. 

Where can we learn life lessons? 

  • from a personal experience
  • from watching something happen between other people.

"We probably have more opportunities for life lessons than we realize"

  1. struggle with a class = have a difficult time with it
  2. raised your hand = put it in the air to get someone's attention
  3. fall behind on your work = you can't do all the things you are supposed to do on time.
  4. leave a question blank = don't write an answer to it. 
  5. count toward your final grade = be part of your final score
  6. affect your grade = can make a difference to your grade
  7. catch up on your work = do all the work on your desk that you had to do
  8. miss a class = fail to attend it
  9. turn in a test = give it to your teacher

What is the story about?

A student learned a lesson from the professor during an exam. 

What did you guess the professor said?

"in your careers, there will be many people who help you. They are all important. At the very least, you should know their names."

What do you think of the profesor response?

Look at the expressions in bold in the blog. Do you understand all of them?
