A quick update for this week!
AVI3O Grade 11 Art Students have completed, (or are VERY close to completing) their sculpture works. The display cabinet outside of the art room looks awesome with the sculptures that are displayed. The masks that are almost done are looking awesome, too. In the meantime, students are working on an Art History Presentation Project.
ENG1D Grade 9 English Stduents have completed their Poetry Books. These are being assessed and evaluated and I will add some pictures and copies of poems to a gallery on the page soon. We have also started our study of Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice”. Students will begin learning how to make sense of Shakespeare by doing an analysis of sections of text to make meaning. Here are a couple of resources for students:
- ENG 1D – Merchant of Venice – Introduction PowerPoint
- No Fear Shakespeare – “The Merchant of Venice”
Students will also learn some background information in this unit, both in terms of Shakespeare’s life and our modern world. The first project is on Global Genocide Issues. The project can be found here: ENG 1D – Merchant of Venice – Genocide Project
NBV3E Grade 11 Aboriginal Beliefs and Values had a session with Lisa Tobin, the Addictions Counselor for the ThunderBird Friendship Centre, yesterday. This is in the midst of our study of “The Rez Sisters,” where we are about a quarter of the way through the play.
As always, have a great week and let me know if you have questions, comments, or concerns!
