This week, the grade 10 history students investigated the theme of “Global Context” in Canadian history by exploring significant figures, trends and developments from 1914 to 2017. Students will then present their research through one of four mediums: a multimedia presentation, a seminar, a modern debate or an extended essay.
The grade 9 English students have finished reading Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. They started to write letters from the perspective of a character in the play, which will be addressed to their friend, parents, or even an advice column. Furthermore, the letter is expected to be written in Shakespearean prose as a challenge to the class.
The grade 9 math students continued their analytical geometry unit by learning how to graph lines and plot coordinate points on their graphing calculators. Using its various functions, students found equations of lines and their intersecting points with much greater efficiency than before. These tools will be useful for their time-constrained test happening later this week.
The grade 10 students embarked on their long anticipated expedition to Algonquin Park. During the four-day trip, teams comprised of 9 or 10 students hiked throughout the park to collect data on items including temperature, wildlife, and water depth and flow rate. Students will be analyzing the collected information through presentations in the upcoming weeks.
