You can find all the vocabulary lists here: https://www.vocabulary.com/profiles/B06N0Q6ZXQMOEF
Please note that there are (many) more lists than you are responsible for for the midterm.
Please note that I have stopped updating this website regularly. All of the assignments and files are now on my two Google Classroom sites. I found it difficult to maintain two sites at the same time, and because most students seemed to be using the Google sites more often than not, I decided to use it.
Please note that you can always request information via email or speak to me in person.
