Roaring into the Twenties

The grade 10 English and history class began their unit on the Roaring Twenties by studying the decade’s culture, technology, and significance. To complement their learning, they began reading F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. Next week, the students will engage in a speakeasy where they will take on the role of a significant figure from the 20s.

Historical Media

As a continuation of their unit on the First World War, the grade 10 history students presented about various ways it is depicted in the media. Topics included the propaganda used in the war and the Vimy Ridge Memorial.

Conditional Coding

The grade 10 ICS class learned about coding loops and conditional statements in Java. They will use their knowledge in an upcoming “Blast Off” project, where they will animate a rocket ship taking off and flying through space. Next week, the students will be researching and presenting potential careers related to computer science.

A Read to Remember

The grade 10 students wrapped up their reading of All Quiet On The Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque, just in time for the centennial anniversary of the Armistice. In the upcoming days, they will begin an assignment which examines different types of media that commemorate the First World War.
