Good morning Grade 10s,

In class today we watched the documentary on Saint Maximilian Kolbe. We took notes on his life and placed an emphasis on the sacrifices that he made to ensure the well-being of others. The documentary can be found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THT5QxhCiGE .

We then went over the schedule for the next couple of classes. Friday or Monday, we will have our reading comprehension. It should not take any more than 25-40 minutes.

On Tuesday or Wednesday, you will be writing your multi. Please ensure that you have read up to page 370 for this multi.

Have a wonderful weekend and get planning!

Sincerely,

Miss Coleman

Hello English 10s Day One (1-4) and Day 2 (2-4),

Today we began class by doing a descriptive write on our holiday. We got back into the hang of writing and some of our hands were extremely sore afterwards.

We then created group questions that will be handed to another group to answer next day. Be sure to finish them up to part four.

We decided as a class, that we would like to go to the basketball game next day, which means that you have to read from pages 241-310 for Monday. Do not forget to do this, you will have a reading check next class.

I hope you had a wonderful break.

See you all next class before we head to the gym,

Miss Coleman

Good afternoon Grade 10s,

Today we began class with a reading check based upon the historical allusions from the novel.

We then went on to look at the short story, “Poisonous Mushroom,” which is an example of German propaganda about the Jewish people during WWII. We came to realize that the extent of which the Germans depicted the Jewish people was atrocious and it was given to children readers.

You have no homework for over the break.

Have a wonderful Christmas!

Sincerely,

Miss Coleman
