There are only three weeks left of the semester. How’s that for insane? In the remaining time, I’m hoping students will make the most of opportunities to catch up on any missing work while completing the remaining content for courses. Students are encouraged to touch base with me to consult on any missing work. Here’s how the last few weeks will likely shape up:
NAC2O Grade 10 Native Studies students will begin the final mini-unit, which explores the successes of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples across Canada in the 21st century. This will be followed with the course culminating project, which asks students to explore “What Next?”
ALC1O Grade 9 Visual Arts students will begin doing soft-cut lino printmaking this week. This is a great hands-on studio assignment and I’m looking forward to the creative ideas these students will come up with in class. I would like to ask the class to help develop a theme for this project, (I’m thinking of “emotions”, but we’ll see what they think).
As always, please let me know if you have any questions or comments. I hope everyone had a great holiday break. Welcome to 2016!
