ELA Update September 30th

Posted: September 30, 2019

8S and 8L: We are in the middle of a writing unit; students are writing snapshot moments.  We began with looking at mentor texts and reading like writers.  We are now moving from the prewriting stage and into our leads.  

8R: The students have been working on prewriting their narrative snapshot moments.  Tomorrow, we will learn how to write effective leads for this genre.  In humanities, we have also been focusing on the upcoming federal election.  Students are learning about their rights and responsibilities, different types of governments across the world, and the different levels of government in Canada.  Next, they will learn about the political parties and specific information about the federal election itself.  We will hold our Student Vote on Wednesday, October 16th!
