Time flies when you are having fun.

I can't believe the first nine weeks is almost over! This Friday marks the end of Term 1, which means many of my classes will be changing. For those who follow the class websites be ready to see some of the above tabs changing around- I will be moving from English 12 TP to Mythology and starting with a new group of Speech students. You will also notice the addition of "Girls Swimming & Diving"- as I am the Varsity Girls Coach I couldn't help but share the website fun with those students and families.

English 11: We are in the middle of The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allen Poe. The students are really getting into our Gothic Literature section! We will be using this short story as our main medium in the next essay. So far the students have completed a Narrative Essay, Persuasive Essay, Descriptive Essay and Non-Fiction Professional Writing. Our next essay will be an Expository/Literary Analysis.

English 12 TP: We finished the novel Along Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Solider! Our final portion if the novel assignments are due tomorrow and we will begin our movie- Blood Diamond.

Speech: We are in the process of giving our final speeches- The Persuasive Speeches have proven to be the tough. I am looking forward to the next to days and the topics that will be presented. After completing the last speech students have a "self-evaluation" and one more impromptu speech!

As you can see- we have completed so much in 9 weeks- I can't wait to see what the next 9 weeks bring!
