Of Mice of Men Ch 1

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.

Class time on Oct 1st was spent on our gallery walk and students handed in the Artifact write-up. If you missed class, please see me asap to make this up. Today we discussed “Identity” and “Personality” in detail. The Personality “test” is posted under the English 11 tab. 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). You will be behind and unable to fully participate if you don’t see me.

Gr 12 Assignment

Attached is our first major task and will be a group inquiry preceding our novel study on Of Mice and Men. It is a guided inquiry, meaning I have provided you with the topic and questions to research. You may add to this as you wish. The purpose is to research and understand various issues that Steinbeck explores in his novel and to make connections to our world today.  Thursday’s class has already seen this document. Tuesday Grade 12s, please peruse the assignment. I will clarify in class on Tuesday. Please bring a device to class next day.

grade 12s

Hi everyone! My site is now working at school again! YAY! Please hand in the composition prior to our next class.

Write a coherent, unified, multi-paragraph (3 or more paragraphs) composition of at least 300 words on the topic below. In your composition, you may apply any appropriate method of development including exposition, persuasion, description, and narration.

  • In addressing the topic, consider all possibilities. You may draw support from the experiences of others or from any aspect of your life: your reading and your experiences.
  • You do not have to accept the basic premise of the topic.
  • You may use the word “I” in this composition since writing a personal anecdote is an option; however, remember this is a formal written assignment and needs to be written appropriately and edited. This is not “stream-of-conscious” writing.

Choose one of the following prompts:

 Our experiences can influence our behaviour

Role models influence our lives

Challenging circumstances lead to positive actions.

Welcome Back to School!

Hi everyone and welcome back! I hope you had a wonderful summer and are ready to embark on a new year! Take a moment to think about what you want to accomplish this year and what you can do to get there. Remember to include your teachers in this plan! I want to help you reach your goals!
