First term

During the first term we will be covering all of the competencies, but with emphasis on the reading and writing competencies. The secondary one students have begun reading The Outsiders and the secondary two students are reading The Absolutely True Dairy of a Part-Time Indian. Both levels are also reading novels at the beginning of each class that have been chosen by the students. A video group project will be assigned dealing with The Outsiders. The secondary two class will be doing a project on the main theme of their novel.

Students must remember...

It is vital that students must: come to class on time, come to class with the necessary materials, and complete their homework. Be aware of the school policy on late homework. The first day an assignment is late, a ten percent penalty will be issued. If the assignment is not handed in the following class, the student will receive a 0 for that assignment. Unless otherwise advised, all work is to be done on the computer following the MLA style (second term). Novel questions must be completed on-line and printed for class. If difficulties are encountered with printing at home, bring the file via a USB stick to school and print it at the library. You could also try taking a screen shot of the assignment and print that. Otherwise, email a copy of the completed on-line work to me and write out the assignment for class.

Plagiarism is a serious topic that will be addressed this term. Since plagiarized work is not the work of the student, anyone who plagiarizes or participates in plagiariam by loaning one's work, will receive a failing mark for the assignment.

Music students are reminded that they need a set of headphones or earbuds for class. They must also have a proper cloth to clean the glass of the iPad before and after using the iPad.
