Ideas to think about in Chapters 1-4:

Steinbeck explores certain issues in his novel including

  • power versus powerlessness (Ch 1&2 for sure!)
  • the individual versus the community
  • loneliness
  • racism, and discrimination.

Begin making notes on the following issues mentioned in the first 4 chapters of the novel. You will have an opportunity to add to this as we continue to read the novel. These ideas can be used for your dialectical journal (To be discussed soon!).

Eng 11 Homework Oct 15

Hello Grade 11s. It was nice to see everyone today and have a great conversation. For next week you need to write a reflection “Learning Log.” Attached is the info on what a Learning Log is. Each student will be completing one each week for the duration of the Indigenous Studies unit. Please look under the English 11 tab for links to helpful resources. Your first log can be in response to the last class, the Stephen Kakfwi video (under the Eng 11 tab), or the article on social emotional learning in children.

Once you’ve completed the test, come speak to me in the Great Hall to discuss your results and find out about what you need to do before next class (Oct 15th).
