It will be an extremely busy week in each English class as we begin very thorough studies of the novels mentioned in the post below. It is extremely important that students do the reading, attend regularly to participate in class discussions and lesson material, and complete assignments. Falling behind by a few days can be difficult to make up.
The majority of lessons and assignments are posted in the pages for each class so if students are away, this will at least help with catching up.
ENG3U Grade 11 University English: You will be working on a Romantic Poetry Research Project for the next 2-3 days. If you end up going to Lakehead University on Friday, awesome. If not, that will keep you busy. Remember that your “Important Issues Essay” is due this week.
ENG4C Grade 12 College English: Many of you have not submitted rough copies of your essay to me. These must be completed by Tuesday, February 16 if you would like detailed feedback. It is important that you read Crow Lake regularly as this unit is fast-paced. You will be spending time studying the first seven chapters this week and then creating a writing assignment as a culminating task. Please see the ENG4C – Lessons and ENG4C – Assignments pages for copies if you need them.
ENG4U Grade 12 University English: Note the due dates for your essay and the requirements to submit to TurnItIn.com. You will be spending the week studying the first third of The Great Gatsby. The workload will be heavy, but hopefully conversations about the novel’s themes and characters are interesting. Refer to the ENG4U – Lessons and ENG4U – Assignments pages for copies of work you may require. On Friday, you will create a “digital collage” assignment. Here are the links that are referred to on the assignment:
Remember that if you need help with any assignments or course information, I’m only an email away. Best of luck this week. It will be challenging, but that is what we are here for, right?
