Blocks E & H – English 12 – Today was your final Lit Circle meeting. A copy of the agenda is available on the Handouts page. You handed in any notes you took during your group discussion and then began working on your final novel writing assignment.
There will be a final activity that involves Finding Forrester. I hope you all enjoyed this movie – definitely one of my favourites.
This is the last class before your big graduation weekend. I hope you enjoy every minute of this important right of passage. I still remember my graduation – yep, I can remember that far back – and it was an amazing experience and still gives me a feeling of pride. Have fun, and be safe!
Block G – English 11 – We began with some silent reading and then began going over our sentence errors booklet. Today we went over “quizzes” 7, 8, & 9. We then looked at an example of the poetry section on a grade 12 government exam. This will relate to some of the poems we are going to look at over the next few classes. You need to finish your paragraph for next class.
Block F – Literature 12 – Today we read Dolce et Decorum est, The Second Coming, and The Hollow Men. We only have 3 poems left to read! You received some review worksheets to finish for next class. Be sure to pre-read the poems for next day.
