November Arrives in #ENG2D and #ICS2O

I’m impressed because it’s the end of October and we don’t have snow in the ground here. I’m sure it’s coming, though. You know what else is coming? Midterms. They’re mere weeks away, which means it is vitally important for students to ensure they are caught up in class, maintaining superior work habits, and participating in class. Most students are doing all of the above and for that, I’m pretty grateful. 

This week in ENG2D – Grade 10 English, we will wrap up our study of Lord of the Flies with some culminating activities including a viewing of the 1990 film adaptation, a literary essay, and a unit test. That’ll keep everyone busy!

In ICS2O – Grade 10 Computer Science, we are continuing our Python coding unit. Students have ten assignments to complete, (some of which involve lots of problem-solving, teamwork, and investigating) and then they will have a good grasp of this powerful programming language. It’s tough, but when it works, it can be rewarding. Students are encouraged to use the many resources (including me!) to help them succeed in this unit. 

The next few months are likely to go by very quickly – and then it will be 2017. Like I said, things are coming very, very fast. If you have questions or comments, please let me know! Have a great week.
