Our last class…
We took a class photo. I’ll post them on the blog so you can see them and download them.
We took home our portfolios, maps, paintings, etc.
We completed an exit survey on the course- what was good, what was not, etc.
We continued watching The Lion King, completing our hero’s journey t-charts.
After self-checking answers to the poetry device review with the key on the board, we began a mini study on the hero’s journey, by Joseph Campbell.
We watched a couple intro videos, discussed the 12 stages, and viewed a breakdown of the stages in Finding Nemo.
Then, we started watching The Lion King, using the T-chart provided, to document the hero’s journey in the film. Incidentally, The Lion King is a loose adaptation of Hamlet.
Today was a review of poetic forms and deviced:
a. a new list of the examinable English 12 Terms and Devices was handed out.
b. the master terms list (definitions and examples) is posted on Moodle
c. we did a poetic forms mix n’ match worksheet and checked our answers with the key
d. we did a gallery walk of poems, identifying the form of each poem, and recording it on the provided worksheet. We then checked our answers against the key.
e. a list to terms and definitions that Mrs. Wall used in grade 11 English was handed out as a resource.
f. we completed a poetic device review worksheet. Finish for homework and we’ll check our answers with the key next class.
The mock exam was handed out and is to be completed by June 12. All late or re-do work is also due on June 12th. Come to tutorial at 3pm that day if you would like feedback.
The Happiness/Success C&C multi was handed back. We went over how to write a proper transitional statement between the two body paragraphs. A handout of notes was also supplied.
We peer edited our PC from last class and made changes before re-submitting.
We completed a core competency reflection.
