Hello Grade 9s,
Today we began class by reading a poem entitled,”Young Offenders Facility, Yellowknife, NWT,” by Anonymous. In your groups you worked on some explication of the poem.
We followed this up, by going over the questions as a class.
We then moved on to the subject of reclamation and we utilized an old document that degraded the First Peoples Potlatch ceremony. We took a negative message and turned into something that was optimistic and hopeful.
If you did not finish your blackout poem, it is due next class.
You may use felt, marker or black pencil crayon to complete it. (Paint is also acceptable, if you have black paint.)
See you Friday,
