 EAP

This week in EAP G class students will

  • Review parts and functions of cells, and compare and contrast them.
  • Participate in a fast writing challenge, and practice writing summaries.
  • Practice the reading strategies of connecting, visualizing, questioning and inferring through a book study of “The Iron Man.”

 Homework:

  • Reading (BC reading and jobs are fine)
  • Practice vocab for SS government topic
  • Noredink
    • Students are expected to now do EAP B or EAP G noredink tasks, unless they have been given permission to do the one set in English class. If you are not sure, see Ms. O’R.

ENGLISH

Book Club (BC) will start this week. Students are expected to have read Chunk 1 by Thursday, summarized the chunk and prepared for their first BC role.Students will then learn to use the EmPower method to write expository paragraphs.

 Homework:

  • Reading (Read chunk 1, summarize chunk 1, BC role)

SOCIAL STUDIES

Students will continue to learn the terms and concepts that are used to describe social structures and government systems. They will participate in a range of tasks to help develop a solid understanding of the terms below:

  • Government
  • Society
  • Democracy
  • Communism
  • Monarchy
  • Constitutional Monarchy
  • Theocracy
  • Dictatorship
  • Transitional Government
  • Capitalism
  • Socialism
  • Communism

It will be useful for students to discuss the meanings of these words with their parents to help understand the terms in their first language (if you have not done so already). All students are asked to talk about what kind of government and social structure is in place in their home country. Feel free to talk about other countries as well, perhaps other countries your family has lived in, or visited, or countries that are in the news at the moment. Be prepared to come and share this information with classmates.

SCIENCE

Cell activities will continue. Students should have finished their analogy and will review for a quiz on cells next week
