The Last (Full) Week Before Christmas in #ENG2D and #ICS2O

‘Twas a few weeks before Christmas, and all through the school…

As of today, there are only seven full days of school left. This is the final full week and we’ll be pushing to accomplish many good things in class before we relax for a few weeks. Things continue to progress well in class as English students get a good grasp of Shakespeare and Computer Science students participate in hands-on learning.

The ENG2D – Grade 10 English class will continue working further into Romeo & Juliet. Most students have been successful in making meaning from the text, connecting themes with our world. Our strategy has been spending most of our time deciphering the text in the early acts and scenes. This will allow us to understand the characters, plots, conflicts, and emotions so that we can focus on the performance aspect of a play later on.

In ICS2O – Grade 10 Computer Science, we spent a few days “tinkering” with some of the tech toys I was provided, including a Makey-MakeyRaspberry Pi 3, and an Arduino board  set. This week, I’d like to finish our HTML/CSS project and then spend more time tinkering – because it’s fun, hands-on, and all that good stuff.

Students are reminded to ensure they follow due dates and deadlines. Here’s hoping everyone has a wonderful week. The (Christmas) light at the end of the tunnel is near!
