    Each Friday, you will take a quiz, which will count as a minor grade. All quizzes are cumulative. The first will have 10 words. The second quiz will have twenty. After that, each quiz will have twenty-five words that will be taken from any of the word sets we have completed. Every third week there will be a test covering ALL words studied; this will be a major grade.
