Hello, everyone! Here’s hoping you’re returning to class rejuvenated from an extra-long weekend. It’s time to get back to focusing on school as we’re only a week away from the middle of the semester. Time flies. Seriously. Here’s what’s going on in class:
AVI3O Grade 11 Art: Students are well on their way to focusing on Art History. We have covered the Middle Ages and are now beginning the Renaissance. Students are doing a combination of textbook research and studio projects. We will be exploring some more artwork in detail this week. Hopefully this will be followed with a study of sculpture techniques.
ENG1D Grade 9 English: The class should be commended for their work with The Chrysalids novel study. The class has completed their first oral seminar, (discussion key questions and points about the novel as a class rather than simply writing answers), with great success. Students will write a short quiz on novel quotations this week and then begin their culminating literary essay.
NBV3E Grade 11 Aboriginal Beliefs & Values: Seven Grandfather Teachings posters are almost complete and they look great. Students have been putting in strong effort towards these assignments and I’m looking forward to displaying them in the school this week. I will post some pictures!
Thanks again to all of my students for continuing to be awesome. Remember, if you require extra help with work or have questions I am available during the 12:05PM Activity Period. Remember that midterms are fast-approaching so get caught up if you’re missing work!
Thanks – and enjoy your (short!) week.
