What is happening in G6 ESL?
Wow, what a busy week last week. Students had MAP tests, a science presentation, a SS presentation, and their short story final due. This week should be a bit calmer, although there will be an EAP quiz on sentence structure and verb tenses.
If you were absent, or did not finish a MAP test last week, you may go to the Loft House to finish on Tues, Wed, Thurs, or Fri 3-4pm, or Wed morning 7.15- 8.15am.
During EAP this week students will sign up for their G7 course registration. At this stage all students will write that they are doing EAP in G7. End of year testing will be conducted in May, and students will be informed if they will be remaining or exiting EAP towards the end of the school year when all their grades, assessments and results are in. If they exit, they will select another language or elective at that time. Please make sure you know what your elective choices are and that you have discussed them with your parents. Course registration can only be done at school. Block EAP A will sign up on Tuesday 9th March. EAP H will sign up Fri 12th March.
In EAP students will have a quiz on tenses and sentence structure. They will then focus on the skills for verb agreements needed in writing and speaking. Students will also practice reading skills and comprehension with short stories and articles. Finally, they will also go over vocabulary need for the science electricity unit.
English will be connected to the SS Future Forecast assignment. Research skills will be developed and culminate in a presentation of your choice that will communicate learning.
Students are also expected to continue to read and complete their summary surveys for the Genre Wheel. Some students have been doing this diligently and reading a wide range of books; others need to make more effort. Your organization grade in EAP reflects the effort you have been making for this task. EAP students are expected to have completed two books by the end of this week in order to do a comparative task based on their reading.
