Students in social studies are learning the difference between secondary and primary sources and also how to analyze these documents.  Students have had a lot of class time to complete these activities, but if they did not, they are for homework.

This week, students are writing a piece of horror flash fiction (a very, very short story).  Most of this week is focused on the drafting process - students will have time in the computer lab on Friday to type up their pieces.

8R has been embarking on a very significant unit for our community.  We are learning about the role that the North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment played in the liberation of Europe during World War II.  The students are very interested in the topic.  We've learned a lot about DDay and over the next few days, will have a better understanding of the role that Miramichi soldiers played in the liberation of the Netherlands.

This week we have been focusing on two major skills: close reading of a non-fiction article and identification/expression of main idea using evidence from the text to support.  We have been tackling this through the topic of energy drinks.  Students have read material on the topic and are completing a close reading and main idea graphic organizer on an article, which is due on Friday.
