There are only 4 weeks of class left before exams begin. That is craziness. Time flies when you’re having fun, I guess. There’s also open water on most likes and walleye season has begun! There are still a few things left to cover in class before it’s completely summer, though.
First, Progress Reports will be prepared for students on Friday, May 23. These reports will indicate the current mark and provide a list of any outstanding assignments. It is important for at-risk students to make appointments to see me to discuss options.
Second, final course projects and culminating tasks will begin soon. This is especially important for NBV3E as there is no exam.
Finally, here’s an update for this week:
ENG1D Grade 9 English students have read “The Merchant of Venice” up to the end of Act 3. Students will take time tomorrow to complete outstanding comprehension questions and begin a short writing assignment. Students will work to complete the play next week.
ENG4C Grade 12 English students are well into 1984. Students will focus on aspects of socialism and communism this week and make connections with the novel’s protagonist and antagonist. Students need to ensure they participate in class discussions to ensure an understanding of this challenging novel.
English students are reminded to use online resources to help with their assignments.
NBV3E Grade 11 Aboriginal Beliefs & Values students have completed some work about treaties and sovereignty. Students will spend some time talking about the Indian Act this week. Next week, we will begin our final short unit on Overcoming Challenges.
Thanks once again and have a great week, everyone! Remember to email me if you need help with an assignment or would like information!
