"Two hours later, still in full pursuit, the ship ran aground on the treacherous Kaliusa Reef, not indicated on Bainbridge's charts.
The crew desperately
water kegs, anchors, and anything else they could find

Rubric for Evaluating Your Glog
Glogs should utilize several (5+) images to visually show what your word means.A quality collage:
enhances our understanding of the word’s meaning (as it is used in context in Boot's book),
clearly represents the core concept of the word,
provokes an alternative way to remember the vocabulary word (beyond the text).
arranges images in a provocative, integrated manner without use of text,
embeds the correct pronunciation (sound), and
is posted correctly on the wiki page for your word.
