The first week of classes has come and gone and students have settled into their new classes. I’m pretty pumped about ENG3U, BTA3O and ENG2D and students’ willingness to participate, perform inquiry and get stuff done.
ENG3U students will focus on essay writing, including info on different types of essays and a focus on the personal essay and the persuasive essay. I’d also like to spend a class in a computer lab to set up individual WordPress Blogs. Students, if you want, you can do this at home, too.
BTA3O students will continue personalizing their WordPress Blogs and then we will spend some time learning about some of the finer feature of Microsoft Word this week.
ENG2D students are going to focus on clear, detailed and effective writing, which will be a lead into the Essay unit. I also want to play with WordPress Blogs in this class, too.
Have a great week, everyone!
