What a great class! I enjoyed hearing everyone’s insightful comments about the Edward Hopper paintings. If you did not finish jotting down your first impressions of each of the paintings, I have attached a PowerPoint of the paintings we looked at. Homework: Complete part 3 on the handout (also attached). Answer in complete and detailed sentences. Part 3 focusses on one of the paintings.

Gr 10 Personal Response

Welcome Back!

Welcome Back everyone! I hope you had a great summer! I am looking forward to an exciting year. Please look through the various resources available on my website. Some we will be referring to throughout the year, others are related to specific units (or grade level). I will post most assignments in this “main feed” and it will be titled by grade or class. Resources that we refer to more regularly will be posted under the tabs above.

As we begin fresh, allow yourself to have a growth mindset. We all need to start somewhere, and if you believe in yourself and challenge yourself, you have the ability to grow, learn, and achieve. If you feel like you “can’t” do something, add a “yet” to the end of the sentence. You are programming your brain to believe that with effort, you can! 🙂
