Book Clubs will be introduced. Yahoo! Students will be shown a selection of books available and make a choice. Book Club groups will then be determined and students can check out their book and start reading. There will be mini lessons on different reading strategies over the next two weeks. We will be going through all the details step-by-step in class.


  • Reading new Book Club book- chunk 1 (Eng)

Terms and concepts that are used to describe social structures and government systems will be introduced. Students will participate in some fun role-plays to help learn and understand these concepts. Below are the terms we will learn about:

  • Government
  • Society
  • Democracy
  • Communism
  • Monarchy
  • Constitutional Monarchy
  • Theocracy
  • Dictatorship

Students will then be introduced to different types of Government Systems. There will be a lot more vocabulary to learn with this unit!



Students should have finished their Information Gap. They will practice and review their learning on cells and make an analogy poster. Again, make sure you check out the ESL Resources Science Folder to help you!
