Today we watched the first half “Canada: A People’s History” Episode 10. This section covers the same material which is outlined in Chapter 3 of our text. Students are to watch the video and complete the series of questions that go along with the video. Please use the links below to read the text, watch the video, and get the assignment.
This week we are launching into http://www.bitstripsforschools.com/. Students are assigned to begin by creating an avatar of themselves and then creating a comic that introduces themselves to the class. Students are to share their comic with the class both on http://www.bitstripsforschools.com/ and on their personal class blogs.
Our “class code” is WPG67E
Students have been doing ELA Skills assignments for the last several weeks. Each week the ELA Skills assignment includes an assigned writing project on the last page.
