Happy New Year! The new year also means the approach of the end of the semester. There are less than three weeks left of regular classes before exams begin. This is the final push for students as they complete regular classroom tasks and begin course culminating work and exam preparations.
In ENG2D – Grade 10 Academic English, we have one final act of Romeo & Juliet to complete, which will occur before the end of this week. Next week, students will complete a Unit Test and Culminating Tasks, which will include a group performance piece, (the acting of a small part of the play) and an independent writing piece. The work will allow students to consider the play’s characters, plot, and conflicts as well as the impact of the play’s themes.
ICS2O – Grade 10 Computer Science students have been assigned their Course Culminating Assignment. This assignment requires students to create an original piece of programming in a language studied in class. The program can be a game or other software, but it must show strong knowledge of a programming language. The outline and requirements of the assignment are included here:
I’m looking forward to seeing what students create with these final course assignments in both English and Computer Science. These are very creative, hands-on students and we’ve had some great work throughout each course.
A reminder that if students would like information about their progress in a course, it is advisable that an appointment is made to come and see me. Thanks!
Enjoy all of 2017!
