Last week, my Grade 11 English class asked to do something different on Friday, and I agreed with their suggestion: make some chocolate chip cookies. I was so impressed with the level of communication and teamwork shown by students. To cap things off, students shared what were described as the “best cookies ever” with other staff and students in the school. Here are some pictures:
This week, ENG3U Grade 11 English will begin studying the novel Frankenstein. It’s a challenging novel and hopefully students will make connections with the novel. There are a variety of resources online for the novel to help students build an understanding of what’s going on.
In ALC1O Grade 9 Art students will spend time creating a project demonstrating their understanding of the various elements of art. The project is similar to this:
Finally, in ENG2P Grade 10 English students will continue working with short stories. The class will be spending some time in the computer lab working on a Spontaneous Short Story assignment. September is quickly coming to an end. Most students are caught up but there are some in the class who are already falling behind. Make sure to see me if you need extra help.
Hope everyone has a great week! Remember: Friday is a PD Day!
